Review: The Bridges of Madison County

The Bridges of Madison County (Dir.: Clint Eastwood; Cast: Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep et al.)

In the first few minutes of  The Bridges of Madison County, you get an idea of the general direction the story will take.

Essentially, The Bridges of Madison County is a story of a relationship of two people. A relationship which is profound yet unconventional. The film is an exploration of how bonding between human beings does not always follow societal rules and norms, of the perennial dilemma of the head and the heart, nature and culture. With great sensitivity, The Bridges of Madison County lays out the relationship in its most honest form and raises the question as to whether there can be a correlation between the conventional, accepted norms and morality at all times.

The acting is top-notch, with Meryl Streep essaying a character in agony as only she can. Clint Eastwood as an actor in this film is perhaps not as good as Clint Eastwood the director, but he still leaves behind a few priceless moments.

In conclusion, it is a must-watch if you have a thing for romantic dramas.
