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.
This was… not good. Very very cheesy and a weird bad script… first bad recommendation from this site :/
What did you think? Who should watch it?
