365 Movies: Breakfast at Tiffany's Review

Breakfast at Tiffany's stars Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, and Buddy Ebsen in this 1961, Blake Edwards' film. The film is about society girl, Holly Golightly(Hepburn) dreams to marry a wealthy man, no matter what he acts like or looks like, but when she falls for a down on his luck writer, things change for both her and her new fella. Her new fella, Paul(Peppard) accepts Holly for Holly, while the other men flee, when they see more of a person behind the beautiful dresses and makeup. Holly, is more real than makes herself out to be, and that's what Paul loves her for. The two go through bit of a roughness with one another, but in the end, they know that they belong to each other. This is by far, Audrey's best film. She is so enchanting and charming, and she embodies the character of Holly Golightly. George is simply marvelous as the caring Paul. The only performance, that I try my hardest to forget is Mickey Rooney's. He is just so awful! Even with him in it, the film is spectacular and the outfits, that Audrey wears are absolutely divine. I would definitely steal everything she wears, in this film!
