Synopsis:
Blake Edwards' screen adaptation of Truman Capote's novella stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, an eccentric high-class escort working in New York. Rubbing shoulders with Hollywood agents and wealthy politicians at glamorous parties, Holly plans to marry into money and save up to help support her brother who is due to return from the army. However, when young writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) - the kept man of a wealthy older woman - moves into Holly's apartment block, the pair soon find their worlds turned upside down.

Beautiful Love Story. - Breakfast at Tiffany's review by Steve

Romantic sixties time capsule. Great fashion, music and NY location. And Audrey Hepburn singing Moon River is so lovely.

New York romance - Breakfast at Tiffany's review by TF

Spoiler Alert

Audrey Hepburn is the star of the movie and iconic in the role. I have read the book, and Hollywood has managed to turn a rather off beat observational novella into a 'happily ever after' rom-com.

A charming romantic comedy that has not aged at all - Breakfast at Tiffany's review by Philip in Paradiso

Spoiler Alert
29/03/2021

The film, considered to be a classic, was made in 1961. It stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly and George Peppard as Paul Varjak. Both monetize their charm and sex appeal, in different ways, and lead unconventional lifestyles. A Hepburn is both naive and calculating, forever looking for Prince Charming. G Peppard is a struggling writer. They are neighbours in a New York block of flats, and the movie is largely about the interaction between them.

The movie is delightfully charming and entertaining, with many funny moments and good dialogues; all the actors and actresses are excellent. (The cantankerous Japanese neighbour is a caricature and could not feature in a film, today, but he is undeniably comical.) What is amazing is that the film has not aged at all, in my opinion. It feels fresh, unconventional, original and full of energy. And A Hepburn is simply irresistible as the zany central character of the story, which she totally dominates effortlessly and with immense charm.

There is nothing intrinsically profound about the storyline, but the film is very good. I strongly recommend it.
