About this Event

** In accordance with ANU COVID-19 safety protocols, all attendees must complete mandatory registration prior to attending screenings. Walk-ins will not be permitted under any circumstances, so please register here to avoid disappointment! **

Struggling writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into a New York apartment building and becomes immediately intrigued by his quirky socialite neighbour Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). But both Paul and Holly have respective pasts that they struggle to conceal, with secrets that could be powerful enough to get in the way.

Celebrating its milestone 60th anniversary this year, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of the most iconic films of all time – largely in part due to Hepburn’s effervescent performance, which is widely regarded as her most famous and recognisable role. The film itself received five Oscar nominations, winning two awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song.

It is not without controversy, however: Caucasian actor Mickey Rooney plays Holly’s landlord, Mr. Yunioshi, in a caricatured depiction of a Japanese man, complete with prosthetics and 'yellowface' make up . An anachronistic, ugly blip on an otherwise classic of a film.

PG | 115 mins | 1961

Doors will open for entry 30 minutes prior to the advertised start time. Please visit our website at www.anufg.org.au or contact us at info@anufg.org.au for more information.
