Staff Pick: Breakfast at Tiffany's at the Drexel

Heather Gross, Columbus Alive

Truman Capote, who wrote the novella on which the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was based, said in interviews that women like his character Holly Golightly "are the authentic American geishas." Men buy them meals and gifts in exchange for their company, he explained.

Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn, was fabulous enough to make any man shell out to be around her. She was elegant and charismatic, but knew when it was appropriate to get completely hammered.

There's always something magical about seeing a classic on the big screen, so don't miss the chance to watch Hepburn prance around in that famous black Givenchy gown at the Drexel this week.
