Released:

Rating:
PG
Out of Africa is the award winning, 1985 epic drama from celebrated director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie). The film explores Karen Blixen's (Meryl Streep, Kramer vs. Kramer, Silkwood, The River Wild, The Devil Wears Prada, Julia and Julia) travels and residency in deepest darkest Africa during the first part of the 19th century. Her fianc'e is a bit of a free-loader, using Blixen's money to fund his farming exploits, (even he's shifty on those details, saying they're going to grow cultivate coffee when it was previously agreed they were going to raise cattle). He also has a habit of going off hunting without telling her. So ultimately she's got a lot of time by herself, and of course that's where Denys (Robert Redford, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, Sneakers, Indecent Proposal), the mysterious safari leader comes in. After saving her from being lion chow, he becomes somewhat of a permanent fixture of the Blixen household.
