#79. Out of Africa

IMDb user rating: 7.2 Year: 1985 Director: Sydney Pollack   Starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, 1985’s “Out of Africa,” the story of a love affair between a plantation owner and big game hunter, duly delivered on its promise of brilliant performances and taut drama—raking in no less than seven Academy Awards. Streep was reportedly quite nervous while shooting a now-iconic hair washing scene, during which some territorial hippos were gathering close by.
