The most acclaimed motion picture of 1985 stars Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in one of the screen’s great epic romances. Directed by Oscar winner Sydney Pollack, Out of Africa is the fascinating true story of Karen Blixen, a strong-willed woman who, with her philandering husband Klaus Maria Brandauer, runs a coffee plantation in Kenya, circa 1914. To her astonishment, she soon discovers herself falling in love with the land, its people and a mysterious white hunter Redford. The masterfully crafted, breathtakingly produced story of love and loss earned Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay based on material from another medium, Cinematography, Original Score, Art Direction Set Decoration and Sound.
Sydney Pollack's 1985 multiple-Oscar winner is a sumptuous and emotionally satisfying film about the life of Danish writer Karen Blixen Meryl Streep, better known as Isak Dinesen, who travels to Kenya to be with her German husband Klaus Maria Brandauer but falls for an English adventurer Robert Redford. The film is slow in developing the relationship, but it is rich in beautiful images of Africa and in the romantic tone surrounding Blixen's gradual discovery of her life and voice. One downside: while we may all love Redford, he is as convincingly British as Kevin Costner is in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. --Tom Keogh
