A Superior Romantic Comedy...

SABRINA is a wonderful film. It's not perfect, but it is immensely enjoyable. The acting is great on all parts, especially Bogart as Linus Larabee and Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina. The movie is effortlessly charming, and the 112 minutes fly by. There's nothing really objectionable in the film. As a girl, Sabrina tries to commit suicide after her crush favors another woman. Her attempt is prevented, but, though the scene is treated mildly, it may be too tense for some kids. There is one "a*s", accompanied by some light, non-frequent sexual innuendos ("the last good pair of legs you went after cost the family $25,000"). Good for ages 10 and up.

I love this movie

Audrey Hepburn is, of course, adorable in this movie. I love it as much, if not more, than the remake. It may not be of interest to children, but there's nothing in it that a parent could object to.
