CULT – 1

Verdict – 5/5

 

 

Pros –

 

1) Story of mentally disturbed, over-extrovert blatant gold-digger discovering true love.
2) It’s landmark movie for the character of Holly Golightly played by Audrey Hepburn, perhaps her best.
3) It’s a dark tragedy under the facade of a beautiful damsel, her social life and Henry Mancini’s music.
4) Analogy of the central character with the nameless cat.
5) Everything related Holly’s character is iconic for pop-culture.Her wild parties, her over-sized cigarette holder, her hats, her hair-styles, careless attitude, her sunglasses, all her dresses.

 
Cons –

 

 

1) Mickey Rooney as Mr. Yunioshi – not funny at all rather annoying.

 

 

Quote –

 

Holly Golightly: I’m like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don’t even belong to each other.
