Can there be a more charming story of love, innocence, and living life to the fullest? This movie is a classic in every sense of the word.

Audrey Hepburn plays the spunky and beautiful Princess Anne who is feeling smothered under the weight of ettiquete, duty, and the social image she has been taught to project. Finally, one night while on a good-will tour of Rome, she steals away for one whole day of fun just for herself. Gregory Peck plays a handsome and affable reporter who befriends her and shows her the world outside of palace life. Of course, he does so with the intent of scoring the article of a lifetime, but ends up in a battle of emotions when he finds himself falling in love.

This film is a masterpiece. The story is charming, the characters are memorable... It's guarenteed to make you laugh and cry. This movie is also responsible for making Hepburn a star. She came from obscurity and ended up earning an Oscar through just this one movie--her first film role!

I promise that within minutes, you will forget that this movie is in black and white, and will be drawn in to this delightful film.

Bonus features include the original trailers, a documentary, and an interview with the daughter of director William Wyler, who remembers being in Rome for the making of this film as a young girl.
