Audrey Hepburn won an Oscar for her first major film role in this classic romance. 

Hepburn plays Princess Anne who has grown tired of not having any freedom, and sneaks away one night. However, she took a powerful sedative beforehand and passes out on a bench. She is found by an American reporter played by Gregory Peck. The two go on a tour of Rome, and Anne gets to live life as a normal person. 

Terrific chemistry between Peck and Hepburn makes this a romantic classic. 

You can watch the full movie online via Netflix Instant. 

Rating: ****
