Sabrina still has style

3 Mar


Director Billy Wilder takes a delightful script and transforms it into one of the best romantic comedies of all time. Love triangles are nothing new to Hollywood’s silver screen, but this star-studded cast, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden sharpens the angles and tightens the focus so there are no loose ends.

Engaged playboy David Larrabee (Holden) becomes attracted to Sabrina (Hepburn) and wants to call off his wedding, but his older brother Linus (Bogart) tries to prevent him because it will interfere with an important business deal. Things become more complex when Linus begin develops feelings for Sabrina as well.

Hepburn can do no wrong while Bogart and Holden’s performances are equally up for the task as Billy Wilder directs these Hollywood icons to the hearts of 1950s households. Sabrina, like other Hepburn films become synonymous with fashion, which has contributed as much to this film’s longevity as the actors and its director.  Sabrina still has style.
