Out of Africa

Denys (Robert Redford) dies in a plane crash. At his funeral, Karen (Meryl Streep) reads part of an A.E. Housman poem. Later, she moves to Denmark and writes some memoirs under the name Isak Denisen. She never goes back to Africa.

Karen Blixen: If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?
