The new Audrey Hepburn documentary seeks to look beyond the glamor, delving into some of the more intimate details of her life shared by her son and those close to her.


Audrey Hepburn has been a beacon of style and beauty since her most cherished days of Hollywood stardom. Not only this, but she had a caring quality about her that she showcased through her humanitarian work.

The film however looks behind the appearance of perfection and explores some of Hepburn’s life experiences through lesser-seen interviews and footage.

The audience experiences the story through interviews of Hepburn interlaced with interviews from those who knew her best—the actress Mita Ungaro; her son Sean Ferrer, and her granddaughter, Emma Ferrer.

Through their delivery, we get a nuanced picture of one of Hollywood’s brightest superstars. From behind the curtains, we get a glimpse into her life when the light go off.

Despite having achieved much of her claim from her career as a movie star, the new documentary. "Audrey," puts little attention on her career.


The Film Pulls Away The Facade

Through Audrey’s own words, one starts to realize that despite all that we thought we know of her through other documentaries and movies and her reputation, it’s all just the tip of an iceberg. And a bulk of what audiences weren’t privy to, exists largely in contrast to our image of the perfect, glam woman who has her share of insecurities.

“Clothes always give me a great deal of self-confidence.”

Hepburn says.
