Movie Love: Merritt Patterson Digs “Complex” Nature of ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’

During the interviews for Unbroken: Path to Redemption, I asked Merritt Patterson and Samuel Hunt to name a movie they respectively love. Patterson’s short and sweet answer was Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Check out our exclusive video below!

I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s a classic to me. I absolutely love it. It’s the character – Holly Golightly is so complex. There’s humor and there’s depth and there’s sadness. I just love that movie. I think it’s a classic. I think she’s fantastic in it. Not to mention the wardrobe is amazing (laughs).” – Merritt Patterson


Though I love Audrey Hepburn (please check out Wait Until Dark and Sabrina) , I still haven’t seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Are you a fan of the film? What are some of your favorite Audrey Hepburn films? Feel free to comment below!

Unbroken: Path to Redemption continues the story of Louis Zamperini (Samuel Hunt) as he attempts to adjust to post-WWII life but struggles with PTSD and a bout with alcoholism. Patterson, who previously starred in The Royals, is Cynthia, Louis’ strong-willed wife who gets him on the right path with a journey of faith. The film opens nationwide September 14.
