Out of Africa has always been my favorite movie, complete with my favorite actress (obsessed with anything that includes Meryl Streep)...and then there's Robert Redford...mmmmmm. I read the book until it fell apart, listened to the soundtrack until it broke (it was a cassette tape), and was inspired by Karen Blixen to follow my heart in spite of the challenges. I remember the first time I watched it with my best friend in the mid-eighties, I can't get the first line (of both the book and movie) from my mind...'I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong hills'. I have enjoyed many movies since but, for me, nothing compares to it.
