From to Karen Blixen , the Danish writer who was later to publish under the name of Isak Dinesen, lived in British East Africa, now Kenya, where she ran a large coffee plantation. She had originally come out to Africa to marry the Swedish-born Baron Bror Blixen, who was her cousin as well as the twin brother of Hans Blixen, the man she really loved but who had jilted her. As man and wife, Bror and Karen were friends and occasional lovers, but Bror was an ebullient, unashamed philanderer, something that Karen seems to have accepted with equanimity until she contracted syphilis from him. They separated — Karen remaining on the farm while Bror went off to pursue his living as a great white hunter, later becoming the model for Ernest Hemingway's Robert Wilson in ''The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber. After Bror's departure, Karen developed what seems to have been the most profound emotional attachment of her life with Denys Finch Hatton, an English Earl's younger son, a charming aristocrat who had enough money to live pretty much as he pleased. Between trips back to England, Denys led wealthy tourists on safaris, hunted on his own, dabbled in various business deals and, from time to time, visited Karen on her farm, usually arriving unannounced and staying only as long as it suited him.
The film is based loosely on the autobiographical book Out of Africa written by Isak Dinesen the pseudonym of Danish author Karen Blixen , which was published in , with additional material from Dinesen's book Shadows on the Grass and other sources. The book was adapted into a screenplay by the writer Kurt Luedtke, and filmed in Karen Blixen recalls her life in Africa where in she, as an unmarried wealthy Danish woman, is spurned by her Swedish nobleman lover and accepts a marriage proposal from his brother Baron Bror Blixen , who moves to the vicinity of Nairobi , British East Africa.

One of the great performances in Out of Africa is provided by the costumes. Streep is Karen Blixen, a wealthy Danish woman who comes to colonial Kenya to get married and ensure a noble title, and Robert Redford plays the role of dashing Denys Finch Hatton, a free-spirited adventurer. She also worked in close collaboration with Stephen Grimes who won the Oscar for his work as the production designer of the film , who arrived early on location in Kenya and would send her colour copies of his paintings so that she could blend the colours for the sets into her designs. Costumes for the lead characters and other non-Africans were made in London, while those of the local people were made in a workshop she set up in Nairobi. Her wedding hat, made of white silk with antique embroidery, is the fanciest hat Meryl Streep wears throughout the film. The clothes project her free-spirited, independent personality. But her elegant attires also include romantic linens in ivory and white, which suggest her other side: she came to Africa in search of romance as well.
