At once beautiful, touching, and deeply moving, A River Runs Though It is the story of two boys who charistically different, retain a close bond through their love of fishing in their homtown of Missoula, Montana. Brad Pitt(legends of the fall) does an exceptional job as Paul Maclean, a carefree, daredevil type who has a gambling problem. this performance shows that Brad is not just a pretty boy but also an superb actor. Craig Sheffer gives a spellbinding performance as Norman Maclean, Paul's serious, level headed brother. He seems to radiate an auroa of light that is rare in a acting performance. I love this movie because it shows Montana's natural beauty and the love of two brothers that can never be broken. It also potrays the message; "it's a nice day out, let's go fishing" One more thing to fully appriciate this movie you have to see it!
