Breakfast at Tiffany's 
Audrey Hepburn is simply elegant and amazing.
3.5/4 stars

Give Hollywood some grudging credit. To date, they've resisted the urge to do a remake of this classic. And it's a good thing too, because you truly can't improve on perfection. I mean can you imagine Nicole Kidman as Holly Golightly? Or Demi Moore? Or worse yet, the utterly talent-free Meg Ryan? Hopefully we'll never live to see something like that. Knowing this movie by reputation only I was completely unprepared for the effect it had on me. This movie has it all. Humor, pathos, characters who are wholly believeable(except for Mickey Rooney as a Japanese landlord! What on earth were they thinking?), and touchingly played-all the way down to the part of the Cat. The reason this movie works can be summarized in 2 words Audrey Hepburn. There simply aren't enough superlatives to describe her performance here. The part of Holly could have turned into a mawkish caricature in lesser hands, but Audrey grabs the part by the horns and turns in the performance of a lifetime. Nobody but nobody could have played the part better This movie pushes every emotional button possible, and it does so in such a way that while you know your emotions have been manipulated you don't mind at all. Just a theory, but I think the reason the movie works so well lies in the character of Holly herself. Holly truly is a universal figure. There are Hollys everywhere. We either know them personally, or whether or not we're willing to admit it we probably have a little or a lot of her in ourselves. Psychology aside watch this movie.
