It’s almost springtime and we continue our romance month by warming up to some mature summer lovin’ with 1995′s The Bridges of Madison County. Maybe it’s the age-old tale of forbidden love, or how surprisingly good Clint Eastwood looked without his shirt, but we sure find it easy to get into this 90s classic starring Meryl Streep, playing Italian-born Iowa housewife Francesca, and Clint Eastwood as transient nature photographer Robert, (also playing double-duty directing the film). With the luscious mid-summer shots of the Iowa farmlands, the slow-burn of Francesca and Robert’s first meeting to seriously getting it on, or the way the movie just… takes it’s time… sorry, we just need a sec to fan ourselves down.
Seriously friends, we have some trouble criticizing this movie. We didn’t even make any immature jokes… okay, we made a few, but maybe we’re just getting into this whole ‘romance’ thing.
We also apologize for the occasional music droning in the background on this episode. Here’s to bad neighbours!
