Hepburn holds the movie together in the role that defined her career. She brings a disarming artlessness to Holly. She looks fabulous in her sophisticated clothes, waves a long black cigarette holder around, and spouts odd little bits of French (calling one aggressive suitor “quel beast”). Yet she seems to float untouched above the seamier aspects of her life, only occasionally letting us see her vulnerability and loneliness. She’s irresistible. And despite all the glamorous party clothes, she’s just as charming wearing a pair of jeans and a simple shirt when she sings the movie’s hit song,”Moon River.”
