Truman Capote's amusing story of an endearingly eccentric New York City playgirl and her shaky romance with a young writer. Hepburn lends Holly Golightly just the right combination of naivete and worldly wisdom with a dash of melancholy. A wonderfully offbeat romance.
The beautiful Audrey Hepburn shines in this charming 60s romance as Holly Golightly, a wild-at-heart young woman who provides a stark contrast to George Peppard's character Paul Varjak. The acting of these two leads is largely what makes the movie believable: wholly convincible in their on-screen relationship, they draw a much-needed and powerful sympathy from the audience. Also adding to the brilliance of the movie is Blake Edwards' great direction, which is backed by Henry Mancini's admirably moving score. Combine these elements, and you get a movie that simply works wonderfully in every way, shape and form.
