Breakfast at Tiffany's(1961)
Perhaps the greatest of all romantic-comedies, 1961's Breakfast at Tiffany's is based on the bestselling novella by Truman Capote, winner of two Academy Awards (for Original Score and Original Song) and stars two perfect leads.... More
Stunning Audrey Hepburn plays Holly Golightly (in a role Capote intended for Marilyn Munroe), a seemingly innocent Manhattan call-girl who lives a dizzying, unstructured and mischievous lifestyle, constantly in search of a millionaire to marry. She falls for her neighbour Paul (George Peppard at his best), a struggling writer 'sponsored' by a generous lady patron who in return has romantic expectations. But Paul is fascinated and perplexed – in public Holly flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air (wearing Givenchy, no less), but when alone she changes into a sweetly vulnerable bundle of neuroses.Hide

Breakfast at Tiffany's
BY Tony-Bertasius lister
There are few films that can make you laugh cry and feel that you are watching something historic. BAT is one of these and missing this on the big screen would be a crime to the industry that has lost sight of what it should be doing with the medium.
Yes there are parts of the film that were of their time, but maybe thats the charm.....sit back and enjoy, engage the heart and not the brain.

This film has no claim to being a classic and people need to wise up. Calling this Audrey Hepburn's finest moment is doing her a serious misjustice. If you want her funny, see " Charade ". If you want her charming, see " Roman Holiday " and is you want her moving and serious, see " The Nun's Story ". This film is racist, sexist and nasty. You can't excuse it as being a product of its time - even then they knew better. Yuck.
