Breakfast at Tiffany’s

  • Dir: Blake Edwards

  • USA, 1961, 115min, DCP

  • Cast: Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard

The Truman Capote adaptation turned eating a pastry while window-shopping into a whimsical rite of passage and is forever synonymous with Audrey Hepburn – an enduring icon of grace and glamor in her Givenchy’s little black dress. While her natural elegance seems at variance with Holly Golightly – a naïve, free-spirited socialite looking to marry into money, Hepburn’s exhilarating portrayal of the complex character offers much to like and sympathize with, and continues to inspire those aspiring to classy romance under “Moon River”.
