Starring: Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard
A New York socialite, Holly Golightly (Hepburn) leads a very typical life for a woman of her kind, socialising and fantasising about attaining a lot of wealth and fame and hoping to marry a filthy rich man very soon. She has a new neighbour, Paul Varjak (Peppard) who is an aspiring writer and the two get along very well. Holly finds that Paul looks a lot like her brother Fred and starts calling him Fred. The bond of friendship grows between the two and Holly confesses her love for the jewelry store called Tiffany's and her ambition to marry its owner. Most of the movie talks about the growing friendship between the two and the eventual and unavoidable love. The story, although simple, keeps your attention together and doesn't have the very typical end that you would expect. Its a light and smooth watch that doesn't have too much of melodrama and has a good sprinkling of humour to further lighten things up. Good performances by Hepburn and Peppard that keeps the movie alive. Based on the book by the same title by Truman Capote.
