Courtesy of our regularly paid-for cable TV service provider, I decided to watch an all-time favorite movie–Breakfast at Tiffany’s. No matter the year, Moon River remains a haunting melody as a backdrop to the story of a troubled free spirit who has come to call New York city–home.
Although Holly Golightly is living in an eggshell of her own making, she treads the waters of the rich and famous without too much concern for her long-term security and happiness. She has run from one lifestyle to another without finding reassuring solutions and always with a worry for her brother–will not say more.
One of the most enduring aspects of the movie is seeing NYC prior to its subsequent decades of struggle and types of decline.
For a rainy day, like Cat, I will take Breakfast at Tiffany’s–it even works on a snowy February afternoon!
