'Out Of Africa'
Although Out of Africa conjures up thoughts of one of the most romantic movies of all time — because it is — it's also a movie about perseverance. It takes one hell of a strong person, in this case a woman by the name of Karen von Blixen (it's her memoir), to up and leave the comfort of her aristocratic life in Denmark to grow coffee in the African bush of Kenya. It also takes one hell of a strong woman to survive all the other things thrown her way.
