For those interested, we went out to dinner at Cuba Libre (do!) and then came home to snuggle up and watch a movie neither of us had seen before - Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Now, Valentine's Day is neither here nor there. What we're going to focus on is how Breakfast at Tiffany's completely baffles me. Don't even ask me why articles such as this one tell me to watch it on Valentine's Day.
Why is this a classic movie? I don't get it?
Before you get all up in arms, I understand that Audrey Hepburn is gorgeous. And that she was a screen legend. And that she was a humanitarian. I get it.
What I do not understand is why people would sing praises to this movie.
Audrey Hepburn plays a flighty woman who cannot manage her money and hopes to win over a sugar daddy with her beautiful flighty-ness. And while she's trying to win over the richest men in New York (or even the world!), she breaks the law by passing messages from a mobster in prison to his man on the outside, but does she know it? Nope. Because not only is she flighty and bad with money, she plays dumb real well (ALL FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY THOUGH! NO WORRIES!).
|Just on her way to prison to get the local weather.|
But don't worry. They fall in love. Because beauty outranks all, my friends.
Am I wrong?
You know who the hero is in this movie?
The cat. The no-name cat. He's the only one who doesn't care that Audrey is beautiful. He just wants her to feed him.
