'Sabrina' has a tender innocence

The Billy Wilder film starring Audrey Hepburn, William Holden and Humphrey Bogart is showing Wednesday at the ArcLight Hollywood.

Is it just me, or are there moments every summer when the desire to escape life as you know it absolutely overwhelms? You've already seen every decent film out there and a few that aren't. Take heart and time travel back to the '50s with the lovely "Sabrina" and the sweet innocence of Audrey Hepburn and a different sort of moviemaking entirely -- quieter, gentler, careful with its emotional punches. As the chauffeur's daughter caught between the wealthy playboy (William Holden) and his serious older brother (Humphrey Bogart), this playful love triangle is a heavenly concoction. Besides, watching the black-and-white Billy Wilder film feels like sitting under the stars on a balmy night. It's part of AFI's 1950s Glamour series at ArcLight Hollywood on Wednesday. So for one night only, sit in the dark and let yourself escape.
