About the Movie

Academy Award®-winner Robert Redford (Best Director, Ordinary People, 1980) captures the majesty of the Montana wilderness and the strength of the American family in this acclaimed adaptation of Norman Maclean's classic memoir. Craig Sheffer stars as the young Norman, and Brad Pitt stars as his brother Paul, an irresistible daredevil driven to challenge the world. Growing up, both boys rebel against their stern minister father. While Norman channels his rebellion into writing, Paul descends a slippery path to self-destruction. Co-starring Tom Skerritt as the Reverend Maclean and Emily Lloyd as wild-hearted Jessie Burns.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Here are two things I never thought I'd say: I like a movie about fly fishing, and Robert Redford has directed one of the most ambitious, accomplished films of the year. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Redford's movie is too little show and too much tell. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 8, 2007

Fresh: A skilled, careful adaptation of a much-admired story. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It doesn't hurt matters that the story's set in one of the world's most beautiful corners -- rendered in pre-twilight glows by cinematographer Philippe Rousselot. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Nov 8, 2007
