Out of Africa - DVD £3.47 @ Selectcheaper
Adapted from Isak Dinesen's novel, OUT OF AFRICA plaintively tells the story of two troubled adults who meet and fall in love in the African wilderness. Karen Blixen-Flecke (Meryl Streep) is a modern woman, caught in the shortcomings of a practical marriage. Finch Hatton (Robert Redford) is a gallant British hunter, lonely, but unable to commit. As they two meet and begin a torrid affair, they set out on an epic adventure in the badlands of Africa--an adventure that real-life Blixen-Flecke would later put to paper under the pen name of Dinesen. Sydney Pollack's opus is a full, visually compelling film. Its storyline evokes a plethora of emotions, ranging from fear and loathing to hope and the elation of love. Redford and Streep are electric as the two damaged infidels in love. A key American film, OUT OF AFRICA is not to be missed.
