I Dreamed of Africa boasts the majestic landscapes and wildlife that explain why anyone would be spellbound by the place. But the story is fitfully episodic and the jerky editing doesn't help a bit.
July 23, 2014
It's neither epic enough to fulfill a grand scope, nor intimate enough to be an overpowering emotional experience.

This film, based on a true story, transcends its handsomeness to present a subtle portrait of a woman's growing consciousness.

In the opening segment of I Dreamed Of Africa, Kim Basinger breaks her leg. The rest of the film is so dull, you can almost hear the bone heal.

Basinger's performance is exceptional. She brings a raw, unselfconscious drive to the role that holds the film together, even while Hudson keeps it hopscotching across time.

Kim Basinger, as Kuki, is attractive and touching, but she's given one unplayable scene after another.

I Dreamed of Africa fails on so many levels that it's hard to even give it credit for the one area in which it excels.
July 23, 2014
It's very similar in story and theme to Out Of Africa but lacks that film's grandeur and real sense of what makes the heroine love the country.
July 23, 2014
Given contemporary African issues, the film doesn't ring true or do anything beyond skate over a familiar and all-too melodramatic surface.

Here's hoping your own dreams of Africa are more interesting -- and better acted -- than this movie.
