Storyline

While she was growing up, Sabrina Fairchild spent more time perched in a tree watching the Larrabee family than she ever did on solid ground. As the chauffeur's daughter on their lavish Long Island estate, Sabrina was invisible behind the branches, but she knew them all below... There is Maude Larrabee, the modern matriarch of the Larrabee Corporation; Linus Larrabee, the serious older son who expanded a successful family business into the world's largest communications company; and David, the handsome, fun-loving Larrabee, who was the center of Sabrina's world until she was shipped off to Paris. After two years on the staff of Vogue magazine, Sabrina has returned to the Larrabee estate but now she has blossomed into a beautiful and sophisticated woman. And she's standing in the way of a billion dollar deal. Written by Cyril Morcrette <cyril@cln46fw.der.edf.fr>

Quotes

[first lines]
Sabrina: Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, not far from New York, there was a very very large mansion, almost a castle, where there lived a family by the name of Larrabee. There were servants inside the mansion, and servants outside the mansion; boatmen to tend the boats, and six crews of gardeners: two for the solarium, the rest for the grounds, and a tree surgeon on retainer. There were specialists for the indoor tennis courts, and the outdoor tennis courts, the outdoor...

Hated it!
4 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, of course. Still, it just saddened me that so many people seem to prefer this to the original. Sure, in the original, Bogart was a bit miscast but hey! He was still Bogie. (anyhow, supposedly Cary Grant was an original choice and they even considered Holden for the Linus role instead) The point is - it was a single, cohesive storyline, with distinctly drawn characters and impeccable pacing. I really wanted to love the remake, but the most glaring flaw was the narcoleptic Julia Ormond. She has the uncanny ability to suck the oxygen out of any room. She actually seemed BORED with the role...as if it weren't artsy enough for her. She was just dull, lifeless and frankly, quite unexceptional. You never got what the fuss was about. If they had to remake it - why cast such a freaking LOX when there were so many delightful, charismatic young actresses who could have given the film a sporting chance? I just don't get what so many people seem to find so enchanting about this utterly forgettable bore.
