A River Runs Through It

In a place almost untouched by time and in an age still blessed by innocence, a father and his two sons struggle to make sense of their changing relationships. The Reverend Maclean is head of the family a stern man shaped by hard times in a land still largely wilderness. His sons are Norman, serious and scholarly, and Paul, a hothead with a weakness for pretty girls and gambling. They are different but devoted and on the Big Blackfoot River they are in perfect harmony, bound by a passion for fly-fishing – the gentle, sometimes mystical art that slowly comes to symbolise their hopes and fears. Set against the stunning backdrop of Montana at the turn of the century and based on a true story, A River Runs Through It is as absorbing as it is enchanting an authentic American masterpiece. Directed by Academy Award® winning filmmaker Robert Redford (Ordinary People), featuring Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer, Tom Skerritt, Brenda Blethyn and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, A River Runs Through It collected an Academy Award® in 1993 for its breathtaking cinematography by Philippe Rousselot and was nominated for Best Original Music Score and Screenplay Adaptation.
