The path of Francesca Johnson’s future seems destined when an unexpected fork in the road causes her to question everything she had come to expect from life. While her husband and children are away at the Illinois state fair in the summer of 1965, Robert Kincaid happens turn into the Johnson farm and asks Francesca for directions to Roseman Bridge. Francesca later learns that he was in Iowa on assignment from National Geographic magazine. She is reluctant seeing that he’s a complete stranger and then she agrees to show him to the bridges and gradually she talks about her life from being a war-bride from Italy which sets the pace for this bittersweet and all-too-brief romance of her life. Through the pain of separation from her secret love and the stark isolation she feels as the details of her life consume her, she writes her thoughts of the four-day love affair which took up three journals. The journals are found by her children after the lawyer was going over Francesca’s will and all the contents which produces a key to her hope chest in the bedroom which contained some of hers and Robert’s things. The message they take from the diaries is to what you what you have to do to be happy in life. After learning that Robert Kincaid’s cremated remains were scattered off Roseman Bridge and that their mother requested that she too be cremated and her ashes to be scattered off Roseman Bridge, the children must decide whether to honor their mother’s final wishes or bury her alongside their father as the family had planned. Adapted from the novel by Robert James Waller, this is the story of a special love that happens just once in a lifetime — if you’re lucky.

Film Review

It's a slight movie on paper. Passing stranger falls in love with housewife, but she decides not to follow him when he moves on. Goodness me, what power it has though! All of that power seems to irradiate from the masterful central performances of both Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep (it's Francesca/Streep's film really, but both actors are strong).Naturally there's more to it than the sweetness of true love's inevitability and the torture of the examined conscience. The affair is played out in flashback as Francesca's children read her will (and reassess their own dysfunctional marriages). This naturally recalls the recent Curious… Benjamin Button in which Cate Blanchett cajoles her daughter into reliving her past. The Bridges of Madison County is a more realist adventure in love-in-time. It also benefits from concentrating on a four day period alone with a short 'recent past' sequence within the narrative framing device, as in the film Atone…

Firstly, let it be said – I am a huge fan of Clint Eastwood in everyway, be it his acting and/or directing. I have had this film in our collection for a while now but hadn't got around to watching it until last night. Well… by the time the end credits rolled I could not believe the emotion I was feeling. Everything about this film is stunning. Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep are magical together. It's not often for me that someone eclipses Eastwood when playing opposite him in a roll but Streep does. It is an injustice that she did not get the Oscar she was nominated for. Then there is the direction which again proves that Eastwood is one of the greatest filmmakers period. Everything about it is beautiful! I am not afraid to admit that there were several moments in the film where tears were welling in my eyes. If you have not seen this film, don't dismiss it as a soppy love story. It is so so much more than that in everyway. Quite simply it is one of the most beautifu…
