"[T]he 1961 Audrey Hepburn classic....There is no denying the charm and grace of her performance, nor the exquisite cut of her Givenchy wardrobe."
Widescreen Review - 04/01/2006

4 stars out of 5 -- "Audrey Hepburn truly made the role her own with a canny combination of naivety and sass..."
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S is one more reason to fall in love with Audrey Hepburn in this this sparkling and, at times, poignant comedy about a free-spirited young woman from the hinterlands redefining herself in New York City. Based on a Truman Capote story, it also features the timeless melody "Moon River" by Henry Mancini.
