Meh. Julia Ormond is exquisite but Harrison Ford is blisteringly dull. The film hardly shows Sabrina's development from gawky nerd to Parisian… More

An almost word for word remake but Harrison Ford is great. Full review later.

Sabrina is the chauffeur's daughter who causes a stir amongst the family.
