World-traveling National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid and Iowa housewife Francesca Johnson aren't looking to turn their lives upside down. Each is at a point in life where expectations are behind them. Yet four days after meeting, they won't want to lose the love they've found. Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood bring blazing starpower and powerful conviction to the beloved characters of Robert James Waller's rhapsodic bestseller of love, choice and consequence. With luck, a love like this happens to some of us sooner or later. For Robert and Francesca, it was later. And it was glorious.
