Overview and Review of the Movie A Roman Holiday Directed by William Wyler.
Princess Anne is on a publicized tour of European capitals. And while she was in Rome, she got bored with all the niceties and rebelled one night against her restricted schedule. She sneaks out of her room but she was on a sedative that time because the Royal Physician gave her that to calm her nerves and falls asleep at a public bench. Later, Joe Bradley a newspaper reporter found her. And grudgingly takes her to his apartment seeing she was unable to walk and was blabbing incoherently.
Everyone says it's a gem on it's own. Specially, since it stars Audrey Hepburn. Who can wow the audience with her acting and beauty and her distinctive voice. I kind of expected more of the ending.. but it came off as bitin. But, i guess that's what they day back in the days...
This sure is a Roman Holiday... because what happened in Rome stays in Rome. :)
