10:45 last night, my husband was channel surfing and saw that Out of Africa was on. This is my favorite film - truly Sidney Pollack's masterpiece. Gorgeous cinematography, great locations, and the acting -Klaus Maria Brandauer, Robert Redford - both turning in wonderful performances, and Michael Kitchen - superb. Then, there is Meryl Streep in what I believe to be her finest role. As the film progressed, I felt myself drifting towards sleep and my quotable quote was, "If I fall asleep, pinch me. I love this movie more than sleep." Twice he did have to prod me awake, but since I can quote most of the movie along with the actors, I wasn't too put out with myself.
Did I mention how gorgeous the costumes are? And the animal work? Sheer beauty.
