The audrey hepburn story parte 1
The Audrey Hepburn Story is a 2000 television film biopic of actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn. It stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, who also produced the film. Emmy Rossum and Sarah Hyland appear during the early scenes of the film playing Hepburn in her early years.
The film spans from Hepburn's early childhood to the 1950s which details her life as a Dutch ballerina, coming to grips with her parents' divorce, and enduring life in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands during World War II. She then settles in the U.S. where she succeeds in making it big as a movie actress, in such movies as Breakfast at Tiffany's.
The closing credits include footage of the real Audrey Hepburn during one of the UNICEF missions she undertook near the end of her life.
Several versions of the film were aired. On the American ABC Network, it aired as a three-hour movie, while in other countries a longer version was broadcast over two nights.
