I Dreamed of Africa Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P4427~Kim Basinger~kimbasinger]] stars in this film based on the life and work of Kuki Gallmann. As a child, Kuki visited Africa with her family and became fascinated with the beauty of its land and wildlife. Years later, at the age of 25, Kuki returned to Africa with her husband, Paolo ([[Performer~P56052~Vincent Perez~vincentperez]]), and their young son, Emanuele ([[Performer~P230177~Liam Aiken~liamaiken]]). Kuki and Paolo built a ranch and developed a passionate interest in protecting the endangered wildlife of the region, such as elephants and rhinos. However, while Africa was a place of beauty and wonder for Kuki, it was also full of danger and tragedy, and when Paolo is unexpectedly killed, Kuki is left alone to fend for Emanuele and her unborn child in this spectacular but unforgiving landscape. I Dreamed of Africa was directed by Academy Award-winner [[Performer~P95079~Hugh Hudson~hughhudson]] and also features [[Performer~P42988~Robert Loggia~robertloggia]] and [[Performer~P62641~Eva Marie Saint~evamariesaint]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
