Reviews
Mine: Beautiful and quite powerful. Actually makes fishing look interesting. I am guessing that if you have any interest in fishing, this would be very powerful. As it is it is still quite good. The relationship between the two brothers and thier father is touching and very well portrayed. This is the best that Brad Pitt has been.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A preacher (Skerritt) teaches his sons about life, grace, and love through the art of fly-fishing in their native Montana, but as the boys grow up and follow very different paths (one straight-and-narrow, the other wild) they find that fishing is the one bond that still draws them together. Respectful adaptation of Norman Maclean's autobiographical novella. Beautifully filmed in Montana, with Oscar-winning cinematography by Philippe Rousselot... but the pace is deliberate, the emotions muted, and the result is a bit sleepy at times.
