Based on a true story.

This exquisite, intelligent romantic drama based on the life of Karen Blixen, was the most highly acclaimed film of its time. Directed by Academy Award winner Sydney Pollack, the film brilliantly captures time and place, with superb performances by Streep, Redford and Brandauer, sumptuous photography and a rich musical score. Out Of Africa follows the true life story of Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep), an amazingly strong-willed woman who moves from Denmark to run a coffee plantation with her philandering husband (Klaus Maria Brandauer) in Kenya, around 1914. To her astonishment, she soon discovers herself falling in love with the land, its people and a mysterious British adventurer and idealist (Robert Redford). Winner of 7 Academy Awards including Best Picture, the film is masterfully crafted and breathtakingly produced to deliver one of the screen's greatest epic stories of hardship and love.

Meryl Streeps acting was superb, as was the scenery in this movie which was well directed by Sydney Pollack. It is no wonder that it won so many Oscars. I would liked to have seen it on the Big Screen.

Wonderful acting and scenery which brought back memories of my years living in Africa. A good story well presented and worthy of the awards it has received.

Timeless, sweeping romantic drama with beautiful photography and brilliant, multi layered performances from the entire cast. It's touching, hugely atmospheric, and gorgeous. It's a classic and if you haven't seen it, you must.
