Breakfast at Tiffany’s

breakfast at tiffanysEvery so often a classic film comes my way and I shake my head watching it and think, what the…? Such is the case with Blake Edwards adaptation of Truman Capote’s novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. First there was the distortion of Capote’s story – a friendship between a call girl and a gay man who Hollywood turn straight. Then there was the offensive, racist performance from Mickey Rooney as the Asian landlord. Finally there was simply too much insipid dialog – a group of actors pretending to be drunk and overacting. What’s to love about this classic film? Even NYC couldn’t save it. 1 out of 5 for the clunker Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Next.
