Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a 1961 movie by Audrey Hepburn. It is a famous romantic comedy in America. The story revolves around Holly, an innocent, Café Society girl who falls in love with a writer. The writer is perhaps a struggling artist in his field. The reason why the movie is named Breakfast at Tiffany’s is that in the first scene, Holly is seen coming out of Tiffany & Co. holding a pouch of her breakfast. However, just like any other movie, there are numerous controversies and the hidden fact of the movie.
Several people believe that Holly was a call girl and a criminal because she ran after men for their money. They also call the movie a racist because the role of a Japanese man is played by a white man and is a stereotype. Apart from that, according to people, Paul Varjak is not an angel. It is mainly because of his relations that he has with women apart from his writing.
