A super famous and absolutely beautiful film, The Graduate describes the story of a recently graduated college student who is trying to discover himself, and what he wants to do with his life. He ends up having an affair with a family friend, a women who is much older then him with a husband and a daughter. When the man ends up falling in love with her daughter, however, he struggles to end things and make amends for what he has done, tearing apart her family.

Probably Audrey Hepburn's most iconic film, Breakfast At Tiffany's follows the life of a woman who is working as an escort and is trying desperately to make money, even if it means marrying a wealthy man that she doesn't love. When a man moves in upstairs, she falls in love with him (a writer who is trying to earn money himself), but is too afraid to admit it to herself. It is such a great film, full of romance and excitement in the bustling city of New York. It includes style and glamour, as does every movie with Audrey Hepburn, and it has such a lovely story that will make you cry and laugh.

3. The Sound Of Music

Actors/actresses: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer

One of my personal absolute favorites, this wonderful musical with Julie Andrews is a remarkable film. This masterpiece is about a nun who moves into the von Trapp family house in order to work as their nanny. She helps them discover the joy in life again through music, laughter, and fun, and she ends up falling in love with the widowed father of the house, a man who needs to discover these things once again as well. It is truly a remarkable movie, and one that can be watched multiple times.
