Roman Holiday

  • Dir: William Wyler

  • USA, 1953, 118minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Eddie Albert

William Wyler’s timeless romantic comedy is a perfect introduction to Audrey Hepburn as a star of the screen. A true blue blood flawlessly fitting the role of a runaway princess, her naïve sense of fun and charming performance gained her enormous popularity and three prominent Best Actress awards. A day of freedom running rings round Rome, Hepburn and Gregory Peck’s charismatic, rascally reporter blast The Mouth of Truth to fame – now does more than rattle a conscience but become a lover’s game.
