BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S (Theatrical Release USA 1961)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Breakfast at Tiffany’s casts George Peppard with Audrey Hepburn to tell a classic story of someone who wants very much to be something other than what she is. The 1961 storyline seems a bit shocking for the times when compared against the previous decade’s Leave It to Beaver world, but is told in a manner that requires little parental guidance. Audrey Hepburn’s natural onscreen panache elevates the story to a higher level than it would have achieved with the choice of another actress.

Storyline

Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) pursues wealth through any means possible while attempting to completely leave her country background behind her.
