Audrey review – a poor Breakfast at Tiffany's with too many waffles
Some heartfelt moments aside, this documentary is an exasperating, Hello-style hagiography that pays too little attention to Hepburn’s film workThere are some heartfelt moments in this documentary portrait of Audrey Hepburn, with touching contributions from her son Sean Hepburn Ferrer, and granddaughter Emma Ferrer – as well as spirited comments from critic Molly Haskell as well as Peter Bogdanovich, who directed Hepburn in his ill-fated 1981 movie They All Laughed. But by and large, it’s an exasperating, simpering, Hello-magazine-interview of a film, blandly celebrating her “iconic” presence in the horribly overrated Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in which she was absurdly unrelaxed and self-conscious.The film gives due weight to the unaffected loveliness and charm of her first leading role, in Roman Holiday. But amid the waffle, her very good performances in Stanley Donen’s Two For the Road and Richard Lester’s Robin and Marian are just ignored. The film also avoids mentioning Alfred Hitchcock’s grudge against Hepburn for using her pregnancy (with Sean) for getting out of her contract to star in his planned but then abandoned movie No Bail for the Judge: Hepburn was aghast to realise her character would be attacked by a rapist.

Met Police Officers May Face Criminal Charges Over Photos Of Sisters Killed In Wembley Park
Two Met Police officers may face criminal charges over inappropriate photographs of two sisters who had been stabbed to death in a north-west London park.Police watchdog the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) believes a criminal offence may have taken place and has handed a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), which will now decide whether to bring charges.Nicole Smallman, 27, and Bibaa Henry, 46, were killed in Fryent Country Park, Wembley, in June after meeting friends to celebrate Henry’s birthday.Later that month allegations emerged that two police officers had taken inappropriate photos at the crime scene and subsequently shared them. The case was referred to the IOPC by the Met.The watchdog also launched a separate investigation to examine the conduct of a further six officers who allegedly were either aware of, received, or viewed the inappropriate photos and failed to challenge or report them, as HuffPost UK reported in August.The two officers, who have not been named, were initially detained on June 22 on suspicion of misconduct in public office. They were released under investigation and suspended from duty.The IOPC is also examining other potential instances of misconduct in relation to this case which include allegations officers shared or utilised answers prior to a police exam, the use of discriminatory language and an allegation one officer took an inappropriate photo at the scene of a sudden death and subsequently shared it.In total some 13 officers have been informed their conduct is under investigation for potential breaches of standards of professional behaviour. Moreover, the IOPC has recommended that the Met takes steps to ensure all officers within a police station in the north-east area conform to the expectations of their behaviour under the Code of Ethics at all time. It also suggests that the Met should review whether supervisors and senior management at that police station are taking personal responsibility to identify and eliminate patterns of inappropriate behaviour.A separate investigation into how the Met handled a number of calls from the family and friends of Smallman and Henry, who were concerned about their whereabouts, remains ongoing. IOPC regional director for London Sal Naseem said: “As a result of our enquiries so far we have made two fast-time recommendations to the Met. These seek to ensure that police officers, their supervisors and senior management teams all take responsibility for a culture that is in line with the Police Code of Ethics and where inappropriate behaviour can be openly challenged.“Last month we also referred one strand of our investigation to the CPS as the evidence we have gathered indicates a criminal offence may have been committed. A report has also been sent to the Met to consider its next steps in terms of potential disciplinary proceedings for the two officers.“Uppermost in our mind remain the family of Nicole and Bibaa, and we continue to provide them with regular updates. We also ensure the officers involved are aware of developments in our investigation.”Danyal Hussein, 18, of Guy Barnett Grove in south-east London, was charged with the sisters’ murder on 2 July. He was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon. A provisional trial date has been set for October 2021.Related... ‘Remember The Victims, Not The Killer’: The 13 Women Murdered By Peter Sutcliffe Six More Police Officers Being Investigated Over Photos Of Sisters Killed In Park
