The Audrey Hepburn Story

ABC, March 27, 8 p.m. E.T.

Call it the Aud Hep Story. Even with three hours at its disposal, this film ends halfway through the star's career and life, with the making of Breakfast at Tiffany's. No My Fair Lady or Charade; nothing of the work for UNICEF. Still, what's onscreen fascinates because of the life itself and, at bottom, because of the dead-on impersonation by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Hepburn's accent; her posture; her chin-down, eyebrows-up way with a line--Hewitt has it all, and charm to boot. Delicious.
