Like all of Ephron's commentaries this one is very informative and ilustrative of the process of making movies. She comments on everything, from lighting, music, acting, writing, costumes, the characters motivations, the food, EVERYTHING.
I strongly recommend listening this one as well as all other commentaries with Nora Ephron (maybe skip Lucky Numbers, if she ever recorded one for that) because they're very entertaining and she always covers all fronts in a way that she is actually explaining how this entire process came to be a successful romantic comedy. It's amazing to hear her talk about everything that comprises a film and even more so when you hear her comment on her own motives for telling stories, the cinematic, literary and political references and bits that are part of films as well as the little things that might go unnoticed and enrich the movie so much.

Highly recommend it, MUST HEAR
