Directed by

Superstars Richard Gere and Julia Roberts team up with Beaches director Garry Marshall for this iconic romantic comedy.

Lost in LA, recently dumped businessman Edward Lewis (Gere) gets more than he bargained for when he approaches prostitute Vivian Ward (Roberts) to ask for directions. Mistaking him for a customer, Vivian fast-talks her way into Lewis's borrowed Lotus and accompanies him to his destination for a fee of $20. Edward is so charmed by her vivaciousness and beauty that he decides to pay her to spend the night with him; but that proves to be just the beginning for this modern-day fairy-tale couple.

Edward offers hard-up Vivian a handsome fee to appear on his arm at various upmarket events, but her uncouth ways raise eyebrows in Lewis's snobbish circle. As the pair grows closer, Vivian begins to suspect that Edward could be the white knight she has always dreamed of, but can he ever see her as anything more than the girl he picked up from Hollywood Boulevard?

A sparkling take on the oft-imitated Pygmalion story, Oscar winner Roberts dazzles in the role that made her a megastar. Creating a winning chemistry with leading man Gere, she earned her second Academy Award nomination for an endearing performance as the quintessential tart with a heart. A frothy and indulgent treat, Marshall's film draws both sobs and smiles as Vivian struggles to make the transition from street walker to society sweetheart. He shows a deft directorial touch with both comedic and emotional scenes, producing numerous memorable moments worth watching again and again. A romcom classic, Pretty Woman still remains one of the most successful and best-loved entries in the genre to date.
