River Runs Through It
2/4/2009, reviewed by Eli Evans
Based on a true story about two boys, sons of a Presbyterian minister, who grow up in Montana. The two are quite different: the older is studious and level-headed; while the younger is more daring, willing to take risks, sometimes unwise ones. The one love they both share is fly fishing. The theme is learning to love what you can't understand.
A well-acted movie with plenty of lovely scenery. Worth seeing, but we don't think we understood it enough to want to watch it again. (One very brief scene includes nudity—two sun-burnt backsides).
