Based on the novel by Robert James Waller

Based on the best-selling novel, The Bridges of Madison County captures the expanse of the American heartland along with the yearning entangled with one of life’s most painful questions, “What if…?” Francesca Johnson, a beautiful Italian woman who married an American soldier to flee war-torn Italy, looks forward to a few days alone on her Iowa farm when her family heads to the 1965 state fair. When a ruggedly handsome National Geographic  photographer pulls into her driveway seeking directions, the course of Francesca’s life changes forever.
