In the 70 years since Roman Holiday transformed the ex-ballerina into a superstar, Audrey Hepburn has inspired the kind of mass adoration usually reserved for deities. If anything, the cult of Hepburn has grown exponentially since her death in 1993. She is probably Hollywood s most beloved star, revered for her humanitarian work as well has her film career and innate style. By all accounts modest and self-effacing, Hepburn never bought into her own myth.
She is the subject of a new documentary made by the BAFTA-nominated team behind McQueen. Audrey, which will be available on DVD and digital download from 30 November 2020 will offer an intimate portrait of the iconic star, showcasing never-seen-before footage, as well as interviews with her family.
Audrey will feature interviews with her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Givenchy former artistic director Clare Waight Keller and Tiffany design director emeritus John Loring. In homage of Heburn’s love of ballet, three acclaimed dancers will enact her different life stages. Francesca Hayward will play ‘Hollywood eraAudrey’ at the height of her fame, Alessandra Ferri plays Audrey in her later years and the film also introduces Keira Moore as ‘Young Audrey’, who the production found through an audition process at ballet schools.
