Funny Face (1957) Rated NR

A fashion shoot at a bookstore brings forth a new model into the fashion world. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Kay Thompson

This is one of the fun films with the music of the Gershwin’s. I enjoyed the music. I enjoyed Audrey Hepburn’s funny face but I did struggle with the chemistry between Hepburn and Fred Astaire. They didn’t seem to as in love as I imagined them to be. There was also times that I noticed the story didn’t always have continuity. The one thing about this film that stands up with time is the underlining message that beauty isn’t just skin deep. Even with the flaws of the film, it is still enjoyable to watch as the actors actually act and not just be in a scene. I also enjoyed watching the actors not only do the roles but to set up the scene for the next scene. This film you actually can see them do this. For that reason it is still worth a watch.
