Special Film Event: Out of Africa

Hello Classic Enthusiasts- In January, we read Out of Africa and I am happy to announce that one  of our members, Karim has graciously offered to host the film in his apartment's party room!  We will be ordering dinner from House of Curries so we are charging a $16 fee for this meet-up.   I hope you can join us!  Carissa

Out of Africa is a 1985 American romantic drama film directed and produced bySydney Pollack and starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. The film is based loosely on the autobiographical book Out of Africa written by Isak Dinesen (the pseudonym of Danish author Karen Blixen), which was published in 1937, with additional material from Dinesen's book Shadows on the Grass and other sources. This film received 28 film awards, including seven Academy Awards.

The book was adapted into a screenplay by the writer Kurt Luedtke, and directed by the American Sydney Pollack. Streep played Karen Blixen; Redford played Denys Finch Hatton; and Klaus Maria Brandauer played Baron Bror Blixen. Others in the film included Michael Kitchen as Berkeley Cole; Malick Bowens as Farah; Stephen Kinyanjui as the Chief; Michael Gough as Lord DelamereSuzanna Hamilton as Felicity, and the model Iman as Mariammo.
