Open iTunes to preview, buy and download this film.
A remake of a 1954 Billy Wilder romance, this updated version of the play Sabrina Fair was directed by Sydney Pollack. Julia Ormond stars as Sabrina Fairchild, the daughter of a kindly chauffeur (John Wood) at the Long Island estate of the upper crust Larrabee family. Sabrina has grown up enchanted from afar with the Larrabees' sparkling world of privilege and wealth, but she's especially enamored of younger Larrabee brother David (Greg Kinnear), a charming womanizer. After the once plain Sabrina returns from a sojourn in Paris transformed into a remarkably poised and attractive young woman, she at long last catches David's eye. In a calculated effort to manipulate David away from her and into a more financially advantageous marriage, older brother Linus (Harrison Ford) pretends to woo Sabrina himself, but finds himself unintentionally falling in love.
I absolutely love this movie but why can it only be rented?! I wouldv'e purchased it in a heartbeat as I've waited for ages for it to come on here!! Come on itunes!!!!
As charming as the original
I was a little skepical about a 'Sabrina' remake as I thought the first was superb, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Greg Kinnear was charming as David Larrabee, and the chemistry between Harrison Ford (Linus) and Julia Ormond (Sabrina) was spot on. I found that I was just as charmed by the characters as in the first film. This is a film for those true romantics out there, but if you decide to buy this one then you absolutely have to buy the original as well - Audrey Hepburn makes a fantastic Sabrina and Bogart just as charming a Linus Larrabee. A must-see!!
STOP DOING REMAKES!
Remakes should be absolutely FORBIDDEN!!! Bogart vs Ford, Ormond vs Hepburn... PLEASE..
buy the movie from 1954 and not a substandard replacement from 90's... Not everything what's black&white is boring..
