Synopsis

Audrey Hepburn plays Jo Stockton, a bookshop clerk, who is discovered by fashion photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire). Initially sceptical of the model lifestyle, Jo only agrees when a trip to Paris and the opportunity to meet her intellectual hero are thrown into the bargain. Musical set pieces, a liberal slice of Parisian life and a whirlwind romance follow. Funny Face is beautiful - as chic as any fashion film, as graceful as any musical. Featuring Astaire in one of his last great roles and Hepburn at the height of her powers - here, in their only collaboration, both stars are on typically effervescent form.
