Photographer Robert Kincaid wanders into the life of housewife Francesca Johnson, for four days in the 1960s.
World-traveling National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid (Eastwood) and Iowa housewife Francesca Johnson (Streep) aren’t looking to turn their lives upside down. Each is at a point in life where expectations are behind them. Yet four days after meeting, they won’t want to lose the love they’ve found in this story of love, choice and consequence.

“To say that Eastwood, who directed, has done a first-rate job of adaptation fails to do him justice. What he’s brought off is closer to alchemy.” – Entertainment Weekly – Owen Gleiberman
“It is easy to analyze the mechanism, but more difficult to explain why this film is so deeply moving.” – Chicago Sun-Times – Roger Ebert
