Wife loved it and has seen it a few times. This was my first time. It was fine, just looked dated as would be expected. I can understand why it was considered to be so good with all the big scenery and the big names in it. I did enjoy seeing Michael Kitchen in his role as a younger guy. He later was the star of all the Foyle's War stories on BBC which is one of my personal favorites.

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.
