Iconic actress Audrey Hepburn lived quite an extraordinary life. While most people know her from the films that she made throughout her career, there are so many more interesting things about this woman that are worth knowing. With the incredible life that she led, I’m surprised that no one has made a movie about her yet!
Well, today we have a trailer for a documentary that is coming out, titled Audrey, which is described as “the definitive feature documentary on Audrey Hepburn: Hollywood star, fashion icon and humanitarian.” This doc will dive into her life and tell the intimate stories and details of Hepburn that people don’t really know. Here’s the synopsis:
Audrey provides an intimate look at one of fashion and Hollywood’s biggest stars, this insightful documentary goes behind the lens revealing never-before-seen footage of her life and showcasing the woman behind the icon. Audrey Hepburn won her first Academy Award at the age of 24 and went on to become one of the world’s greatest cultural icons: a once-in-a-generation beauty, and legendary star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, whose style and pioneering collaboration with Hubert de Givenchy continues to inspire. But who was the real Audrey Hepburn? “The film provides intimate interviews with those who knew her best, woven around rare archival footage. However, we have taken it one step further and worked with multi award-winning choreographer, Wayne McGregor CBE, to create dance sequences inspired by Audrey’s love of ballet, building a beguiling and emotionally affecting portrait of Audrey.”
There’s a fantastic podcast that I listen to called The Secret History of Hollywood, and it takes an incredibly detailed deep dive into the life of Audrey Hepburn and beautifully tells her story. It’s a long ride, but totally worth it. So, if you’re interested in learning about the life of Audrey Hepburn, you might want to check it out. Her story will definitely surprise you!
Audrey is directed by Helena Coan (Chasing Perfect) and Good Deed Ent will release it direct-to-DVD / VOD in December later this year.
