Can't we leave well enough alone?
10 April 2002 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll restrain myself as best as possible, but this biopic was beyond awful. Perhaps I'm biased as an Audrey Hepburn fan, but what fan wouldn't want to see her role model done justice? The performance by Hewitt in this film is contrived, and I get the feeling that she didn't really do much research or put that much effort into this particular role -- especially seeing that Hepburn was supposed to be Hewitt's "idol." Who would give their idol such a cheap accent, two facial expressions and gratuitous cleavage when this idol was known for her sexless appeal, grace and ethereal charm? This biopic does no justice whatsoever to the timeless Audrey Hepburn. If anyone is curious to find out more about Miss Hepburn, I highly suggest avoiding this film and instead renting "Roman Holiday," Audrey's first starring role film and the role that won her an Oscar.
