Overview

Based on Robert James Waller's hugely successful novel, this 1965-set drama chronicles the touching romance between a middle-aged, Italian-American housewife and a photographer from "National Geographic." Academy Award nominations: Best Actress--Meryl Streep.
The film adaptation of Robert James Waller's wildly popular, bestselling novel. The story takes place in 1965, in the farmlands of Iowa, where bored, middle-aged Italian housewife Francesca has just sent her two kids and husband away to the state fair. Shortly thereafter she encounters Robert Kincaid, a mysterious, rugged, "National Geographic" photographer, on assignment taking pictures of Iowa's covered bridges. The two are immediately attracted to each other, and when Francesca invites Robert back to her home, they begin a romantic, sensual, illicit affair that lasts over the next few days. For Francesca, this is the first time in years that she's experienced passion in her life, and she realizes that maybe she's found her true love. Robert feels the same way, and shortly before her family returns home, asks Francesca to run off with him. Francesca now must make an important decision -- one that will affect the rest of her life and could leave her with many regrets...

    Blu-ray Disc Features:

    Region [unknown]
    Released theatrically in the USA on June 2, 1995, and had an opening weekend box office gross of $10.5 million. The film was a big hit, grossing more than $70 million domestically and $115 million overseas.

    Color by Technicolor.

    Shot on location in Winterset, Iowa (population: 4,200).

    There was a fierce competition for the role of Francesca. Considered or mentioned for the part were: Jessica Lange, Isabella Rossellini (whom author Waller favored), Susan Sarandon, Catherine Deneuve, Lena Olin, Sonia Braga, Cher, Anjelica Huston, Emma Thompson, Geena Davis, and Mary McDonnell. And Barbara Hershey won a poll conducted by the "Chicago Sun-Times".

    Clint Eastwood, who shot the film in a brisk 42 days, replaced Bruce Beresford as director. Beresford left because he objected to Steven Spielberg's script changes (Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment produced the movie). Prior to Beresford, Sydney Pollack and then Spielberg himself were slated to direct the film, but each dropped out. Eastwood also replaced Robert Redford in the lead role.

    Meryl Streep was a runner-up for best actress of 1995 in voting by the National Society of Film Critics.

    Rated BBFC 12 by the British Board of Film Classification.
