Critics Consensus

The straightforward retelling of Kuki Gallman's life in Africa neither moves or entertains the viewer.

Audience Reviews for I Dreamed of Africa

  • Feb 18, 2015
    I don't think this was the best movie. It lacked in the story department as well as acting. Although it did have great landscapes, it still fails to impress.

    The scenery and Vincent Perez were worth a look. I've never seen Garrett Strommen, or at least I don't remember. And that's odd because he is HOT! I've read that it stays rather true to the actual story.

    Kim Basinger was excellent in this. The whole film is wonderfully exotic and beautifully shot.

    This true drama based on the memoirs of Kuki Gallmann was so emotionally and sadly when she got homestead on a farm in Africa with her new husband and young son.
