Breakfast At Tiffany's

This was a really good movie.

I can honestly see why this is considered a classic film. So the story of Breakfast At Tiffany's follows a young girl named Holly played by Audrey Hepburn who is sort of an odd character that lives in New York City where she meets her new neighbor Paul played by George Peppard, and they of course, start a relationship together. Now I have to say I love the casting choices for this movie, Audrey Hepburn is a true joy to watch in this movie and she is insanely gorgeous and funny but can still show raw emotion, George Peppard was a pretty average guy in the movie and his performance is very real and very normal and it makes sense because he's just an average guy who just moved to New York. The comedy in the movie is strong but not always present and to put it in a word, fluid. Just look at the party scene alone, every single person in that room goes with the flow, not even for a split second does someone second guess what's happening. Someone tells someone else hold my drink, they immediately hold their drink, someone passes out drunk, everyone just keeps doing what they are doing, someone lifts a girl up and puts her on the shoulders of a man having a conversation, the guy doesn't even stop talking for two seconds. That is easily the funniest scene in the movie. But sadly it's not all fun parties and drinks, there are heavy emotional moments in this film and they are acted incredibly well. There are quite a few quiet scenes with hardly any dialogue or even music, and there is a moment in the film where you can sense that the film has changed directions and nothing will be the same. You know what I am talking about, it always happens in romance movies where you can just tell we have gone over the edge and plunged straight into serious, dramatic times. This is truly a remarkable film and many people who have not seen the movie know of it's reputation, and for good reason too. Breakfast At Tiffany's is a true gem of cinema, and is regarded as one of the greats. You will not be disappointed with this film.
