The Bridges of Madison County
Eastwood and Streep excel in a heart-rending love story; one of the great modern weepies.
Dir Clint Eastwood
With Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep, Annie Corley
Eastwood’s marvellously sensitive yet understated adaptation of Robert James Waller’s novel depicts, slowly but surely, the deepening of feelings harboured by Francesca (Streep), a hitherto happily married woman living in the Iowa farmlands, and Robert (Eastwood), a photographer visiting the region. What first seems a harmless flirtation turns into a romance of enormous emotional turbulence and results in one of the great weepies of the modern era.
