This review is from: I Dreamed Of Africa [DVD]  (DVD)
I loved the book by Kuki Gallman, but was utterly bemused by this awful film! Kim Basinger, I feel, was totally miscast as the central character, and went into her usual 'mooning and pouting' at every conceivable opportunity. She appeared as a moody-teenager for most of the film, and there was a true lack of guts and a glossing-over of the feelings and depth portrait by Kuki in her wonderful book.
Would not recommend this film at all, but WOULD recommend reading Kuki's story, as it was astounding and extremely moving.
