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?

Malnourished as a child, abandoned by her father, and growing up under Nazi occupation in Holland, Hepburn faced a life-long battle with the traumas of her past, which thwarted her dreams of becoming a ballet dancer, and cast a shadow over her personal life. Yet she found inner peace, using her superstardom for good as a global ambassador for UNICEF, and bringing her life full circle: first a victim of war, then a source of relief to millions.

A hybrid of rare archive, cinematic dance sequences, and intimate interviews with those who knew her best, this film brings a truly extraordinary woman to life, who stands as testament to the power of love and forgiveness.

The documentary feature contributions from:

  • Sean Hepburn-Ferrer (Audrey’s son)
  • Emma Ferrer (Audrey’s granddaughter)
  • Richard Dreyfuss (co-star)
  • Clare Waight Keller (artistic director, Givenchy)
  • John Loring (design director emeritus of Tiffany & Co)

Audrey is available to rent and own on digital from November 30th in the UK, December 15th in the US and December 16th in Australia. Other international markets from February 8th 2021.
