Well, it’s that season of the year again. Christmas is only 2 days away! What fun! I got a pleasant surprise from my parents when they informed me that I would be going home again this Christmas. So that means I’ll be putting up some posts about The Bahamas soon! (yay!) but in the mean time, since I’ve not posted for a while (not having internet at home can really be a bummer, along with finals) I’ve decided to write about something 😀
I’m a huge Audrey Hepburn fan, and as such I’ve come up with my top 5 movies of hers to watch.
First, I’ll talk about the Audrey Hepburn movies:
1. Charade. This movie came out in 1963, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. It’s set in Paris and is about a young married woman finding out the truth about her husband, Charles, who died, and she’s being chased by several people and doesn’t know who she should trust. Grant’s character is her friend, helping her out through it all, or is he…?
There’s a modern remake called “The Truth About Charlie” starring Thandie Newton, Mark Walhberg and a ton of other amazing actors. Although different from the original, it’s still an amazing remake.
2. Paris When It Sizzles. This movie came out in 1964, starring Audrey Hepburn and William Holden. This movie too, is set in Paris. Hepburn is a typewriter, who’s helping out Holden, a screen writer who is suffering from writer’s block.
3. Roman Holiday. Filmed in 1953 and set in Rome, starring Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck and Eddie Albert. Hepburn is playing a bored princes who meets Peck and Albert and falls in love with Peck who she doesn’t know is a journalist. However, besides being a typical romance story, it’s a story about Hepburn’s character, growing up and growing into a princess who no longer needs to be sheltered and told what to do.
4. Sabrina. Filmed in 1954 and set in America, starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. However, this movie has nothing whatsoever to do with witches. It’s about Hepburn who plays Sabrina. Sabrina is the daughter of the chauffer of the Larrabee family. She falls in love with the playboy brother portrayed by Holden, and he falls in love with her. However, his family does not want the two together, and therefore Bogart must find a way to separate the pair, while appearing to be helping Sabrina out and also making sure Sabrina never has any dealings with the family again. However, not everything works out like planned…
5. Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Starring Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard. The ultimate Audrey Hepburn movie. No Audrey Hepburn films list would be complete without it. This movie came ou in 1961 and set in New York City. When I first watched the movie I was under the impression that it would actually be about her having breakfast at Tiffany’s because she was so glamourous or something of the sort. However, the name can mislead many who don’t know what it’s about. Hepburn is a young socialite who lives in New York City and all she really wants is jewelry from Tiffany’s. She doesn’t really seem to know what it is she wants to do with her life, and tends to be very compulsive with her actions. However, she meets her new neighbour and becomes intrigued. One thing leads to another and it makes for one of the best films of the 1960s.
