Synopsis Theatrical release: February 21, 1986. Filmed on location in Kenya and Northeast England. The book OUT OF AFRICA is Danish writer Isak Dinesen's (her real name was Karen Blixen) account of her life in British East Africa from 1913 to 1931. He even took the gramophone on safari. Three rifles, supplies for a month, and Mozart.--Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep)...[Streep creates] a Karen Blixen of such intelligence, intensity and obsessiveness that you can believe she would one day...write the cool, dark, bewitching prose......A sensitive, enveloping romantic tragedy...Adapted from Isak Dinesen's novel, OUT OF AFRICA, this film 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 Karen Blixen-Flecke would later novelize under the pen name Isak Dinesen. Sydney Pollack's opus, OUT OF AFRICA, 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. Robert Redford and Meryl Streep are electric as the two damaged infidels in love. A key American film, OUT OF AFRICA is not to be missed.4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his is perfectly played all round.
