Out of Africa

+ intro by composer and author Neil Brand

Meryl Streep and Robert Redford star in this sweeping romance between a plantation owner and a big-game hunter.

Out of Africa

Thursday 19 November 2015 20:00

USA 1985
Directed by Sydney Pollack
With Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Klaus Maria Brandauer
161 min

John Barry’s luminous score is one of the chief virtues of Pollack’s misty-eyed tale of a doomed romance on the African plains. It accompanies Karen and Denys’ plane ride over the sweeping landscape and creatures of the country they loved. Neil Brand introduces the screening with points to listen out for on this musical journey.

Joint ticket available with The Music of Love on Screen £16, concs £12 (Members pay £1.70 less). Please note the joint ticket price is only available in person or by phone on 020 7928 3232.
