Audrey Hepburn + Rome = Grace, Class, and Beauty

William Wyler's Roman Holiday crosses the postcard genre with a hardy trope: Old World royalty seeks escape from stuffy, ritual-bound, lives for a fling with the modern world, especially with Americans.

Politicking with 'Made in Dagenham''s Miranda Richardson

Miranda Richardson discusses this season's premiere feminism-themed film about the real-life strike at the UK Ford plant that challenged and changed British laws on equal pay. Just how far have we come since 1968 in the fight for gender equality in the workplace?

Breakfast at Tiffany's: Check, Please

I hate it when a film takes a brilliant literary work and turns it into what it thinks the literary work should be.

Funny Face

Heterosexual coupling wins the day, but the relationship that really counts in this film is between the two people who aren’t in love with each other, but rather with fashion.

Breakfast At Tiffany's: Paramount Centennial Collection

In many respects, this is a love letter to a tony, cosmopolitan New York which perhaps never existed, a Big Apple devoid of muggings, racial strife, or transit strikes.

For all its stylistic achievements, Funny Face ultimately is a story about finding a balance between brains and beauty, and eventually rejects both and settles for love.
