The Bridges of Madison County
World-travelling National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid and Iowa housewife Francesca Johnson aren't looking to turn their lives upside down. Each is at a point in life where expectations are behind them. Yet four days after meeting, they wont want to lose the love they're found.
Academy Award winners Meryl STREEP (earning her 10th Oscar nomination for this performance) and Clint EASTWOOD (who also produces and directs) bring blazing starpower and powerful conviction to the beloved characters of Robert James Wallers rhapsodic best seller of love, choice and consequence.
STREEP and EASTWOOD are so visually and spiritually right they seem to have walked right off the page, Entertainment Weekly proclaims. Also right are the small details and large emotions of once-in-a-lifetime love. With luck, a love like that happens to some of us sooner or later. For Robert and Francesca, it was later. And it was glorious.
