Bow Tie Cinema at the Harbour Center continues its ongoing weekend "Cine Classic" Film Series with the much-loved 1961 romantic comedy, Breakfast at Tiffany's. Starring Audrey Hepburn in her most iconic role, the film, based on a Truman Capote novella, also introduced the song "Moon River."
Directed by Blake Edwards, Breakfast at Tiffany's manages to blend romantic fantasy with bold-for-its-time realism. Yet it never loses its basic charm and sweet wistfulness.
