  1. Despite the movie's dramatic weaknesses, I was spellbound by the images.
  2. Though beautifully acted by Basinger (everyone else is relegated to a supporting role), there's a strange vagueness to much of this sumptuous, stunningly photographed melodrama.
  3. Frill-less almost to the point of minimalist, teary without being lachrymose, hers is a performance you'd think was great were the movie in a language you didn't understand.

    Why waste the price of a movie ticket when you can see wildebeests cavorting for free from the comfort of your own recliner?

    Ultimately the movie is alluring and respectful--its sadness may be what saves it from becoming sensationalist or trite.
  6. The story the film tells ruins the movie.
  7. This is a Laura Ashley on Safari meditation on bored rich people searching for fulfillment and a new life among the photogenic wildlife of Kenya. Just wake me when it's over.
