365 Movies: Sabrina Review

Sabrina stars Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden in this 1954, Billy Wilder film. The chauffeur's daughter falls madly for the employer's son. Trying to end her fling with David, Sabrina's Father(John Williams) sends his daughter off to Paris, where she'll be there for the next two years, to live how to cook. After her two years away, Sabrina(Hepburn) changes not only physically but mentally as well. When she sees David(Holden) again, she thinks her heart falls again for him, but she soon realizes she has moved on - this time with his older brother, Linus(Bogart)! This is such a marvelous and romantic film, that I never really appreciated until, I re-watched it a couple of times. It can be a little odd to see Hepburn and Bogart as a couple, considering the huge age difference, but somehow they work.

Hepburn had such an easy way with older leading men... Grant and Cooper are excellent examples. Sabrina was actually my first Audrey film... and I am so glad that it was!
