Released in 1961 and based off of the novella, the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been one of America’s classics for 61 years. It has won multiple awards, including an Oscar award for the song, “Moon River.”  Audrey Hepburn portrays her character, Holly Golightly with superb acting and she is really what makes the movie exemplary.

The film takes place in New York with a well-known socialite Holly Golightly who is desperate for love but more desperate for money. When she meets her new neighbor who is young and with a very wealthy woman, Paul Varjak (George Peppard). This film is listed as a silly but a cute romance by the way Holly acts throughout the movie. Hepburn gives the audience her most iconic performance within the hour and 55 minute film. This movie is quite unique and there is really nothing like it.

Hepburn always gives a very unique performance in almost every film she has starred in such as Roman Holiday; Funny Face; and Sabrina. Her costar, George Peppard, known for his role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s became very popular after the movie was a hit.

I would 100% recommend people to add this movie to the must watch list if you are into the classics! Audrey Hepburn is one of Hollywood’s most glamorous actresses and Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of Hollywood’s most glamorous films; this movie was made for her.
