An exquisite and intelligent romantic drama based on the true story, multiple-Oscar winner Meryl Streep is astounding as famous author Karen Blixen, who moves from Denmark to Nairobi with her husband of convenience (Oscar nominee Klaus Maria Brandauer) to start a plantation. As his infidelity leads him away for longer and longer periods of time, Karen finds herself falling in love with a British adventurer (Oscar winner Robert Redford) and struggling with the troubles of daily life in Africa. Beautifully shot with a seamless script that integrates five books of Blixen's memoirs, the film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Director (Sydney Pollack) and Best Picture. A must-see classic!
