Portraying Hepburn as a near saint who yearned for her distant father’s love, the fawning telepic The Audrey Hepburn Story makes her grim World War II childhood more gripping than her rapid rise to fame. Hewitt is certainly thin and pretty, but she doesn’t capture the effortless elegance of the beloved star. At least she’s more convincing than the lame Humphrey Bogart and Gregory Peck impersonators.
