My wife has been in love with Brad Pitt since before she was my wife, and the thought of watching this film about Brad Pitt fly fishing was never deemed as a "good idea" in her eyes.
When I started the film today, she noticed the film I was starting to watch, giggled with glee at the 1992 version of Brad Pitt and walked out the door.
She still had zero interested in seeing a fly fishing film.
The irony lies with the fact that the scenes with fly fishing were the part parts of the movie.
A River Runs Through It starts off very strong, gets very mediocre and dull in the middle and picks up enough for a strong finish.
The cinematography is gorgeous and the acting is pretty good. A River Runs Through It is not Robert Redford's best directorial efforts but this film would further propel Brad Pitts career into super stardom.
