PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
Photographer Robert Kincaid wanders into the life of housewife Francesca Johnson for four days in the 1960s.
Clint Eastwood's then live-in girlfriend Frances Fisher proposed herself to play the adult version of Francesca's daughter. That was rejected by Clint. Fisher had hoped to play "any part" in this movie because she revered Meryl Streep and simply wanted to be part of any movie that starred the foremost actress of her generation. She wanted to observe Streep at work. Eastwood knew this, so he kept saying, "Next week" whenever Fisher asked to visit the Iowa set. Finally, when Fisher arrived in Iowa, she discovered Streep had already gone. "Oh", Eastwood informed her, "she's done with her scenes."
But love won't obey our expectations. Its mystery is pure and absolute. What Robert and I had, could not continue if we were together. What Richard and I shared would vanish if we were apart. But how I wanted to share this. How would our lives have ...
The strap of Francesca's dress rearranges itself on her shoulder while she is dancing with Robert. Also, Robert's collar smoothes itself.
