Flick Pick: Out Of Africa

Out Of Africa
(Universal, 1985)

Sydney Pollack's 14th feature film as director, and the fifth (of six) times with Robert Redford. Breathtaking cinematography, a soaring score, and Redford opposite the incomparable Meryl Streep made this a screen epic in Pollack's incredible career. Klaus Maria Brandauer always makes one of the best total bastards in film, no less so in this effort.
Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Original Score
