| Above Average Film Despite Slow Pacing!
Despite the tepid, glacial pace and long running time, I found Sydney Pollack's Out of Africa to be an intriguing movie. This film is filled with beautiful cinematography especially when it comes to landscape shots, great acting, and enough animals to easily satisfy a naturalist.

This film is about a life of a woman when she moves from Denmark to Kenya in 1913 and her story of her time in Africa.

The acting is very good especially by Streep and Redford. I think they were the ones who kept me interested in the film with their charming performances.

Overall, this is a really good movie. The question is does this movie deserve the Best Picture award? I wouldn't think so because the other options are a little better than this film. If it wasn't for a very slow pace, this film would have been very good. I rate this film 8/10.
