This tragedy, starring Audrey Hepburn, reveals the horrors of womanhood in the early 20th century as a woman is used by selfish men for their own games. Hepburn finds herself falling in love with one of these jerks, then hating him, and then decides to tolerate him because it’s better than living on the streets. The final moments of the film are shocking and terrifying. 

Oft mistaken for a comedy, this tragic drama is exquisitely shot in 70mm and features a large collection of memorable songs mostly designed to remind us that, while men rule the world, we are particularly ill-suited to do so.
