The iconic 1961 film adaptation of Truman Capote’s novella opens on Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) arriving at the famous Fifth Avenue jewellery store, Tiffany’s. 

Wearing a black ball gown with matching gloves, an elaborate updo, oversized sunglasses and several lush strands of pearls, she bites into a pastry as 'Moon River’ swells on the soundtrack. 

The film is about Holly and the aspiring writer (George Peppard) who moves into her apartment building. Together they forge a relationship grounded in their desire to find a better life for themselves, but her past threatens to get in the way of them finding the true meaning of happiness. 

Content warning: this film contains offensive racial stereotyping.

‘An unusual love story: glamorous, sophisticated, with more than a touch of the bizarre’ – Hollywood Reporter
