Why Breakfast at Tiffany’s is Seriously Romantic

I just finished watching it {probably for about the hundredth time in my life} but it’s still one of the most romantic movies of all time. The scene where he tells her people do belong to other people while she’s in the cab, running off to the airport to fly to Brazil? Serious Hollywood magic right there. And then when she runs after him in the rain, and finds her cat, and they kiss? 

No, those aren’t tears in my eyes. Your twenty-something is a romantic, guys.

My only complaint is that the book Breakfast at Tiffany’s  
is not nearly as romantic as the film portrays. Holly is basically a call-girl, the narrator doesn’t have a name at all, and the whole point of the story is that he’s curious what happened to the girl who lived in his building YEARS LATER {point being: they don’t even end up together}. So, sorry Capote, the movie takes the edge in this one {and that never happens}.
