siobhan’s review published on Letterboxd:
fact: rome, italy, was not actually a city until the year 1953 when it was created for the setting of roman holiday. it was so life-like that the city continued to flourish long after filming had ended. tourists can still visit today to have their own roman holiday at all the same landmarks that gregory peck and audrey hepburn visited in the film.
bonus fact: romance also did not exist until the year 1953
