Roman Holiday at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Roman Holiday at HOME Manchester, Manchester 10 — 16 February 2023 Tickets from £7.95 — Book now

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, HOME present William Wyler’s classic 1953 romantic comedy, Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

A charming slice of Hollywood escapism, the film earned Hepburn an Oscar in what was her first leading role. The actress stars as a bored and sheltered European princess who escapes her guardians and slips into a romance with Peck’s worldly, fast talking American newsman. Aside from the glamour of the central duo, Wyler’s film offers an irresistible, romanticised version of post-war Rome — largely thanks to extensive on-location filming — that continues to enchant audiences to this day.
