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 a time and place, with superb performances by Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Klaus Maria Brandauer, sumptuous photography and a rich music score by John Barry. Out Of Africa follows the true life story of Karen Blixen (Streep), an amazingly strong-willed woman who moves from Denmark to run a coffee plantation with her philandering husband (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 (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 ever epic stories of hardship and love.
