Breakfast At Tiffany's
Audrey Hepburn ■ George Peppard
Struggling writer Paul Varjak moves into a New York apartment building and becomes intrigued by his pretty, quirky neighbor Holly Golightly. Holly's lifestyle confuses and fascinates Paul; in public she flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air, but when they're alone she changes into a sweetly vulnerable bundle of neuroses.
Audrey Hepburn's most famous roll is Holly Golightly. What is it about the neurotic girl trying to cover up her own pain and insecurities with parties and other behaviors? I really don't know. I have to be honest, the first time I watched this movie I didn't like it. In fact I got really mad at a particular scene near the end, those who have seen this movie will know which one. But I watched it a couple of more times and it really grew on me, now it is one of my favorite Audrey movies, the others being Funny Face, Charade, and Sabrina.
This movie really is more of a drama, a glimpse into the life of a girl with a difficult past and a man without much of future. Both Holly and Paul are flawed characters that have made poor life choices but you find yourself rooting for them to not only get together but to get their lives straightened out. I am not going to give away the end of course but it is well worth watching to find out for yourself.
So, get some popcorn or whatever you like and take some time to visit Tiffany's, a New York City library, the fire escape on a Manhattan apartment, Sing-Sing prison and most of all fall in love with Cat.
