That would be terrible. Just let it be.... except maybe digitally swap George Takei for Micky Rooney and rework the dialogue.

You really sure you want to renew this casually racist crapfest?

Not everything needs a prequel or a sequel, or even ever visited again, not because it got it done perfectly the first go around, but because the world has moved on, and the rose-colored glasses of nostalgia have really hidden a lot of terrible messages in one film.

FTR-Capote hated the movie and all the cast.

As for extending the story, the prequel could be interesting but would likely sink into the normal tropes of the Redneck south. A sequel would just have Tiffany be a bitter aging woman out of touch with the Mod scene. It would look like a bad remake of "The Graduate."

While I love the movie (except for every scene with Mickey Rooney), I wouldn't mind a remake that stuck closer to the book. But I have no interest in anything not taken directly from Capote's writing.

Pet deer are a rich people thing. You keep smallish grazing animals as pets to mow your lawn, but it's important that they're not very useful, for signaling purposes. So, no goats, no sheep, nothing like that. Deer fit the bill pretty well.

/ but maybe she just liked deer.

If I were casting the move back then, I would have tried to get Joanne Woodward as Holly. (Capote wanted Marilyn Monroe, but she was under contract to another studio).

That's one of the great inefficiencies of modern living.  "Hey, I have this yard that needs mowing.  Sure, lots of animals eat grass, many of these animals taste delicious, but instead I'm going to go out and buy a ~$200 gas-guzzling machine to do it for me.  I will use this machine an average of fifty hours a year, but I and each of my neighbors must all have our own."

Really?  I was thinking they should do a digitized "oriental" Micky Rooney again.

He was brilliant in it.  Or rather..... Brirriant!

Breakfast at Tiffany's was about two whores who fell in love with each other and tried to reconcile their love with their whoring.  They finally do.  But in the end they are just two whores.  And Holly would have been off in Brazil if she had not been arrested.

It is like when people talk about Pretty Woman being a love story.  No, a guy decided he wanted to buy a whore, and he did.

/nothing wrong with whores, but ain't a whole lot of romance in whoring.

FLMountainMan:

Strongly agree. Suburban yards especially are the dumbest things. I'd much rather have a lot-sized park on every block, and still save space over every house having a big, useless front lawn and a big, barely-useful backyard. Gimme enough to grill, play close games of catch, and garden a bit, in the back, nothing in the front, and a park 90 seconds' walk away (at most) any day, over the big-enough-to-be-annoying-but-not-big-​enough-to-really-be-useful suburban lawns, any day. I should be able to care for the grass on my property with nothing more than an electric weed-eater and ten minutes a week. People who want more can live in the country. Suburban lawns are a waste of space, time, and money.

I've always lived in a "midtown" type area, but I think the lawns are great, if only for the distance it puts between your house and the street.   All it takes it one shiatty neighbor and your communal park idea is ruined.

My beef is more with the waste of every house on the block having a lawn mower (or snow blower, FTM).  If people shared them, you'd save money and save space in the landfill.  At my previous house, I managed to convince two of my neighbors to do this and it worked well.

It really is a terrible movie, with terrible people all around, even if a few of them are mildly charming, it's a film that has not aged well, beyond the terrible Mickey Rooney yellowface. I do not understand the soft spot that this film has with some folks.

I haven't watched that film maybe for a few decades.  But putting aside Rooney who is so incredibly distracting and somewhat movie ruining. The depictions of the parties was really dated (oooh drunk people - BFD). Holly Golightly is really unlikable.  And Moon River is the type of sentimental schmaltzy garbage song everyone's parents like at that timeperiod and will never come back in popularity.

I think the only reason I sort of enjoyed watching it was it was an interesting look into the NYC yuppie set of that time period.  And frankly any film with Audrey Hepburn gets a few extra points in my book. But frankly, I'd rather watch My Fair Lady over this movie any day of the week.

That part's true to the book, anyway. If anything, she'd be even more unlikable with a very straight adaptation. Or pitiable, more specifically.

Understood. I read the Novella after seeing the movie many many times. Probably could have had a different name for the title as it was so far off base from the book. They were more seedy, with a prostitute hooking up with a gay guy in a run down flat. And I love the movie, I liked it better than the Novella.

A clever filmmaker could probably edit out Mickey Rooney entirely. His was not a load-bearing role in the film.
