Rounding Out The Classics: A River Runs Through It (1992)

A River Runs Through It (1992)

If you've ever wondered how people can rhapsodize poetically about fly fishing, then this one's for you. Beautifully adapted from Norman MacLean's autobiographical novella, the film follows two brothers who have taken nearly opposite paths in life but find a common bond in fishing the rivers of Montana. Brilliant photography brings both the landscape and the art of fly fishing to life. This movie rarely fails in appealing to a broad range of people, combining sport, family, nostalgia, and, romance. Of course, having Brad Pitt as one of the brothers doesn't hurt.
