A lyrical and nostalgic film from director Robert Redford (Quiz Show, Ordinary People), based on the popular autobiographical novel by Norman MacLean, A River Runs Through It shows the best that modern filmmaking has to offer. The film chronicles two brothers coming of age in early-20th-century Missoula, Montana, under the stern tutelage of their minister father, played by Tom Skerritt (Top Gun). Their father instills in them a love of fly fishing, which for one brother (Brad Pitt) becomes a lifelong passion even as he sets out to become a newspaperman and struggles with his addiction to gambling. The other brother, Norman (Craig Sheffer), dreams of exploring the world outside of Missoula as he falls in love with a local girl (Emily Lloyd) who also dreams of broader horizons. Soon one brother must discover the true meaning of family loyalty when the other finds himself in deeper trouble than ever before. Redford, who also narrates the film, does a masterful job in re-creating the period and in drawing out affecting performances from his young cast. An Oscar winner for Philippe Rousselot's luminescent cinematography, this is a poignant and special film. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is in the Top Ten of all time FAVES.
As a fly fisher myself I love a movie that tells a beautiful story such as this..I was never a big fan of leading man,Brad Pitt..
but this movie,put me on the watch list 4 his future releases...
I have been a fan of Tom Skerrit and his portrayal as the father figure ,trying to instill is value system on is two sons
is heart rending...especially towards the end when he knows he has failed his son(Pitt).
Of course Pitt is on a course of self destruction and no one is going to stop him,,
The one thing the men in this family has in common is their love of fly fishing...yeah I can dig it..and the portrayal of the fishing scenes is,damn near spot on...you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the RIVER as it carries your past away and CLEANSES YOUR SOUL...
Camera work that is as good as it gets,the surroundings stealing the scenes,good actors...what's not to like ???
DAMN FINE MOVIE...I LOVE IT...
At the very least, you'll remember its stunning landscapes for a long time, particularly the powerful and majestic "Blackfoot River" captured immaculately by the same cinematographer as Dangerous Liaisons. Montana must be a pretty state!
Robert Redford's voiceover narration in his silken voice is calm, allowing the poetry of Norman Maclean's written words to carry the emotion: "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it."
What piqued my attention was its subtheme of the passion for a pursuit -- fly fishing in this case, which is an intrigue to me in itself. As the fishing lines flick and whisk over the whispering river, a low sun sheening the tree-lined horizon, the rhythm of image embraces imagination and meditation. We are close to understanding what Norman means when he says he is "haunted by waters".
By the time the film comes to its lyrically elegiac end, it has touched your heart and made you think. That is perhaps a good reason in and of itself to watch the movie. Personally, I'd even recommend getting the DVD, it's one you'll watch with kids or people who matter to you.
