"Out of Africa"(1985), a pure classic.
A movie that stays with you, moments after. With actors like no others, Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
Artistic and poetic.. richness.
“Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road.”
Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep)
a pure perfection. :)
"Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions."

Meryl Streep on Robin Williams.
Christopher Reeve and Robin Williams became good friends when they both attended The Juilliard School together. In his book, “Still Me,” Reeve wrote about Williams surprising him in the hospital:Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately…it was Robin Williams…for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
"This was for an Interview magazine cover story - Shelley Wanger was the editor then. It is the only time that Meryl really accepted to stay long enough to do a true sitting. People are still talking about that extraordinary moment. Meryl never actually enjoyed being looked at and photographed. She has no patience for it unless she is in character. In all the 35 years we’ve been friends this was the only time she accepted to be there. So I am glad there was this moment. It was a long sitting for Meryl - maybe two hours." -Brigitte Lacombe, 2013
