Biographic made-for-TV movie of the life of one of Hollywood's most famous actreses: Audrey Hepburn, spaning from her early childhood to the 1960's which details her life as Dutch overachieving ballerina, coming to grips with her parents divorce and enduring five hard years of living in Nazi occupied Holland during World War II. Audrey then settles in the USA where she tries to make it big as a movie actress and the emotional trials that follow her with it.Written by

When Audrey is auditioning for the ballet school in London in 1947, there is a close-up of a pair of feet wearing pointe shoes. Unfortunately, these feet are wearing Gaynor Mindens, pointe shoes not introduced to the world until the late 1990's, shoes that, because of the very advanced methods in their construction, are controversial in the ballet world to this day.

I would like to thank my mother, who taught me to stand up straight, sit erect, use discipline with wine and sweets, and only smoke six cigarettes a day.

I believe this role should have been played from Audrey Tautou she looks like Audrey Hepburn , she is so sweet also .
I believe this role should have been played from Audrey Tautou she looks like Audrey Hepburn , she is so sweet also . Same name,similar look and Audrey Tautou is an excellent actor. Anyway a biography film cannot replace the person Audrey Hepburn, a blank will always exist because these were the gold years of cinema and as the years were passed , cinema's quality gets poorer and poorer. Of course there are many great actors and Jeniffer is one of them perhaps she wasn't the best choice for this role but she is also giving us great films.We shouldn't be tough with the actors sometimes they are humans sometimes they are doing some bad choices in their career. Although anyone would like to give by acting life to a legend , it takes courage to do it and the result is unexpected always .
