"Witty, warm and beautifully filmed, it remains an unabashed romantic delight, with Hepburn particularly luminescent."—David Parkinson, Empire

Audrey Hepburn made one of the most sensational debuts in screen history, winning an Academy Award for her first starring role. In this modern-day fairy tale (reputedly based on a real-life experience of Britain’s Princess Margaret…but also remarkably similar to the reel-life model of Frank Capra’s IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT), a cooped-up princess on an Italian tour runs away from her royal duties and into the arms of an American newsman (Peck), who must choose between a career-making scoop and a risky romance. 4K DCP digital.
