Sabrina (1995)

Director:

Sydney Pollack

Starring:

Harrison Ford

Julia Ormond

Greg Kinnear

Plot:

An ugly duckling having undergone a remarkable change, still harbors feelings for her crush: a carefree playboy, but not before his business-focused brother has something to say about it.

Review:

Harrison Ford plays Humphrey Bogarts character perfectly. Neither man is any good at romance and it’s actually kind of funny to watch them try.

I like this version more, I think, than the original. Mainly because she doesn’t try and kill herself over a boy. She does mope and generally act like a love sick cow, but she matures and seems to recognize that she’s being ridiculous.

I do not agree with the plot synopsis that she was an ugly duckling, cause she wasn’t. It was the 90s, that’s how teenagers dressed.

Good movie, I like the story, and I like that the side characters have a little bit more going on in this one.

4/5
