”Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is one of the best movies to watch when you’re sick at home

GENRE The Free Spirit

INGREDIENTS Party gal Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) enchants neighbor George Peppard as he tries to keep up with her wild ways.

YOU CAN SLEEP THROUGH Mickey Rooney’s wince-worthy yellowface performance as Holly’s Japanese neighbor

STAY AWAKE FOR A pensive Holly singing ”Moon River,” while accompanying herself on guitar

HEALING POWERS It’s nice to think you too could be this carefree and heedless, if only you could get out of bed.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE Other great free spirits include Barbra Streisand in What’s Up, Doc, Katharine Hepburn in Bringing Up Baby, and Carole Lombard in My Man Godfrey.
