The Bridges of Madison County | 1995 | PG-13 | - 4.0.5

Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood star in the film adaptation of the bestseller about an Iowa housewife and a roving photographer who find love for four days.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A woman holds her robe open and we briefly, and in shadow, see one breast. A woman looks at herself in a mirror and we see the bottoms of her breasts. A man is shown bare-chested. A man and woman are in a tub together and we see the outlines of her breasts. An extended slow dancing/kissing scene. A couple is shown in bed, in shadows, kissing and we see the woman's bare derriere.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Adultery, falling in love, sacrifice, family, raising children, small-town living.

MESSAGE - Sometimes the best thing to do for your love is to stay apart from each other. Family obligations sometimes take precedence over what an individual family member wants.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
