“The old dreams were good dreams; they didn’t work out but I’m glad I had them”

The best part of the movie is the portrayal of the illicit romance between Kincaid (Clint Eastwood) and Francesca (meryl Streep). Playing the role of an underappreciated bored housewife, Streep excels at bringing out both ecstasy and nervousness, and Eastwood’s brilliant performance of a man recognising his unspoken lonliness. Streep is astoundingly convincing with her use of mannerism, accent, look and reaction, which is unparalleled.

Good direction makes this film a work of heartbreaking story of emotional turmoil, unfulfilled dreams and tough choices.

This not-so-perfect, yet delightful drama is my “Movie of the Day”
