If you think you've seen My Fair Lady before....you haven't.

Just have to say....haven't seen this movie since I was a kid, forgotten probably about 90% of it. Watched this wonderful and glorious 4K remastering of it last night. OMG, incredible. There are so called 4k remasterings (i.e. they take a old movie, throw it through a few upscale software programs then slap a 4K sticker on it..cough cough Superman 4K release last year, cough cough) and there are the TRUE 4K REMASTERING editions where digital artists go back and frame by frame, restore and bring old wonderful films, using the latest restoration technologies back to incredible life. It's painstaking and takes YEARS on films to complete, but it truly shows in the end product and it's truly a marvel. . They did this with the latest 4K remastering of JAWS, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining and Funny Girl (highly recommend those as well).
Seriously, the result looks like these films were just filmed yesterday. Films once thought lost to time and degradation of old film are brilliantly restored to their former greatness. This is one of those films that's been given this wonderful process. To see Audrey Hepburn at probably one of her all time greatest performances, fully restored back to 4K brilliance was truly mesmerizing. I can say, I wept a tear to see her again in the iconic ball gown walking down those steps in full remastered 4K glory. Truly movie history.
If you love Audrey and love this movie, highly recommend picking this up. It'll blow your mind.
