This is for My Dear Friend Tere

Take another look at the 1985 Best Picture "Out of Africa" based on the true story of Karen ('Isak') Dinesen Blixen, directed by the late Sydney Pollack and starring Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Klaus Maria.  In 20th century colonial Kenya, a Danish baroness/plantation owner has a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with a free-spirited big-game hunter who established a plantation in Africa.  It also won the Oscar for Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score and Best Adapted Screenplay.  I'm looking forward to seeing it again!
