Paul Varjak moves into a New York apartment building and becomes intrigued by his pretty, quirky neighbor Holly Golightly. Holly’s lifestyle confuses and fascinates Paul; in public she flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air, but when they’re alone she changes into a sweetly and vulnerable girl.

It was such a good film that got two Oscars among other prizes. If you like Audrey Hepburn and her films, you will be charmed with this one. The best is what he says to her at the end.
