Audrey - 2020 - 6/10
I half expected this biography of Audrey Hepburn to disappoint.
Her childhood moves quickly. Parents, Nazi supporters, her struggles in WWII Netherlands.
Glimpses of her early theatre work, minor English film roles, are rare gems.
Hollywood years involve 5-6 films, and some major films omitted.
Outside of marriages, her personal life is sketchy.
Her role as Unicef ambassador is well covered.
There are ballet sequences with no purpose.
Talking heads include Swiss neighbors, Richard Avedon’s grandson (?), biographers, people who barely knew her.
Many come across as distant souls trying to touch Hepburn’s stardust.
She deserves a better doc than this.
