Roman Holiday (1953) Rated NR

A princess escapes from her sheltered life and falls in love with a reporter in Rome. Starring Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Eddie Albert.

What could be more delightful than watching Peck and Hepburn together on-screen?  This whimsical, romantic film is a perennial favorite.  Hepburn is perfect as the free-spirited princess who escapes her stifling life to explore the great city of Rome, only to encounter Peck, a good Samaritan and reporter.  Over the course of 24 hours, they tour the city, run into all kinds of crazy trouble, and fall in love with each other.

Not only is the story appealing, the cinematography is fantastic. The angles director William Wyler uses are just phenomenal. Both the actors and the camera bring life and emotion to the screen, not to mention the beautiful backdrop of Rome itself.  Don’t miss this unforgettable film; it is worth a watch.
