Harrison Ford - Sabrina 1995

Sabrina - Released December 15, 1995. Directed by Sydney Pollack

The Sabrina (Julia Ormond) of Sydney Pollack's remake of the 1954 Billy Wilder Sabrina is still a lost innocent, the Larrabee family are still blindingly wealthy and dwell in a kind of Kingdom by the sea, and the problem of managing wealth and the lives attached to it continues to vex the eldest son of the family, Linus (Harrison Ford in this tale, Humphrey Bogart in the older one).

Pollack's film gently updates Wilder's era into one more modern, and some of the caustic bite is toned down, but the same problems rule the story - Sabrina starts off with a radically over-the-top infatuation for the younger Larrabee brother David, and this keeps her in an emotional stasis that a trip to Paris is meant to overcome: it doesn't exactly do the job.

Pollack's film emphasizes what was more shaded in Wilder's movie, which is that Sabrina becomes a bridge to real life for the always-responsible Linus Larrabee, and a glittering and beautiful distraction for the younger brother who is engaged to someone else.
