Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Limited by the vapidity of this material while he trims its excesses with the requisite machete, Mr. Eastwood locates a moving, elegiac love story at the heart of Mr. Waller's self-congratulatory overkill.
Fresh: Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, as Waller's tenderly plaintive heartland lovers, are so visually and spiritually right they seem to have walked right off the page.
Fresh: Madison County is Eastwood's gift to women: to Francesca, to all the girls he's loved before -- and to Streep, who alchemizes literary mawkishness into intelligent movie passion.
Fresh: Given the intelligent restraint of the treatment, this is about as fine an adaptation of this material as one could hope for...

This movie is absolutely amazing, for only having a cast of mainly two people it draws you into their lives and you don't realize that your only watching two people throughout the whole movie! This goes to the awesomeness of The quality of the actors! Streep and Eastwood are superstars who not only draw you in but make you want "adultery " to not be wrong!
This movie is amazing! As others said, there are pretty much only two characters throughout but you won't even notice because this movie consumes you. I could watch this over and over.

I loved this movie! The music is beautiful, and the characters are awesome! I am a Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep fan, die hard. It reminded me of a relationship I was in. You will laugh, cry, and it will touch your very soul.
