Salmon Fishing in the Yemen 2011 / Now On Amazon Prime

7.0

A light and simple feel-good movie with great performances from an impressive cast. Ewan McGregor plays the country’s best fisheries expert who is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help bring the sport of fly-fishing to a desert in the Middle-East, a place at the peak of tensions. The Prime Minister’s office, with the help of the media, try to then bring this story to the public as a show of something good happening in the region. It’s a quirky movie with a beautiful love story and a few interesting ideas on the current state of journalism. Both leads are absolutely charming together.

Emily Blunt’s character is lovely. Ewan’s character is very easy to root for. Everything I liked about The Cider House Rules, I liked about this film. They clearly share the same director. The story was breezy, but not cheesy. Heartfelt and humorous. 4.5 stars out of 5.
