This is the movie that you can watch many times over and be pleased with quality of everything. Miss a lot this era of movie making.

I'd like to make a vote here for Karen Blixen, a stunningly brilliant writer, who wrote quite a lot in the long short story form.

GREAT 1985 film that deservedly won 6 Oscars. Fabulous cinematography of African geography/scenery and varied animal species, good romantic drama of primary characters, and interesting peek into British colonial occupation of Africa circa 1915-1919.

A sweeping romance that will linger with you. Redford and Streep have such amazing chemistry, it makes me swoon.

Old fashioned, sweeping romance. Yet, it plays against type. Not everything goes as planned for Meryl Streep. Maybe that's why it appeals to me.

Storytelling is the foundation of all Isak Dineson's writing. Based on her real life experience Out of Africa is a beautiful film that carries along the viewer to the land of Kenya in the early days of colony occupation.

Loneliness, romance, love and lost make this a classic film.

A must see.
