Audrey in the Afternoon: 'Funny Face'


“Audrey in the Afternoon,” a 6-week film lecture series celebrating the work of actress Audrey Hepburn, will be presented by librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz at the Barrington Public Library on Wednesday afternoons at 1:00 PM. On May 8, "Funny Face" will be shown. This 1957 film is a frothy, colorful musical about a drab Greenwich Village bookstore clerk who is whisked away to Paris, where she becomes a beautiful haute couture model thanks to fashion photographer Fred Astaire. But will Hepburn’s preoccupation with a young philosopher stand in the way of a romance with Astaire? The series continues with The Nun’s Story on May 15th; Breakfast at Tiffany’s on May 22nd; My Fair Lady on May 29th; and Charade  on June 5th.
