Breakfast at Tiffany’s
1961
****
Director: Blake Edwards
Cast: Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, Mickey Rooney

An unusual but delightful romantic comedy from Truman Capote’s novella. Holly is a socialite who makes a living dating generous rich men, Paul is a struggling writer who is sponsored by a wealthy married woman, and they both live in the same apartment building. It’s the early 1960s, yet the characters are not young and pure but complex individuals with flaws and secrets. Audrey Hepburn, who is at her loveliest, memorably sings Henry Mancini’s “Moon River”.
