Breakfast at Tiffany’s
So, we here at Vili Flik have decided to change our weekly schedule at tiny bit. We realised that there are too many wonderful books and films out there to only have one day a week dedicated to them, so as of today Friday Feast is out and instead we give you the brand new Friday Film.
*Wait for applause*
The very first Friday Film is a classic, and one of our favourites. A film that hardly needs any introduction: Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). We have referred to this film and to the stunning and talented Audrey Hepburn on this blog several times before, but one can never have too much of a good thing. So here is how the story goes:
Holly Golightly spends her time entertaining rich men while saving up to buy a ranch where she plans to raise horses with her brother. She keeps track of the top ten richest men in America under 30 and socializes with filmmakers and models. One day Paul Varjak moves into her apartment building, and it turns out that he is in a very similar situation as Holly. Paul is “being kept” by a rich woman while trying to write a novel. Paul and Holly become friends, but while Holly tries to escape reality, Paul tries to capture it.
All of this happens in 1960’s New York where everything is beautiful and classy and stylish (let’s face it, has Miss Hepburn ever been unstylish?). If you haven’t seen this film yet, you really should watch it this weekend. Although keep boyfriends away: this is a chick flick. A really, really good one. And if you already have seen it, why not do so again? Get your friends over, make a night of it. I recommend it.
