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.

Wonderful classic worth of rewatching many times over!

"Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true, we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding."

It helps if one is familiar in any way at all with the exquisite art of fly-fishing. It is most definitely a Zen experience (in an astoundingly placid and beautiful setting) which makes the dark choices of the one brother's life all the more tragic.
The outstanding acting allows one to become firmly intrenched into the movie which earns it the full 5 stars.

Robert Redford's recounting on film of the classic autobiography of Norman Maclean. An Oscar winner for its cinematography, it is also a winner of the heart.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE ABOUT A GUY'S LIFE SINCE HIS YOUNG AGES IN MONTANA. BEAUTIFUL PICTURES AND HISTORY. SUITABLE FOR A VERY SWEET SOUL.

Disregard the previous comments. They must have been made by morons. Great movie from a wonderful book about a family that wants to know how to help those they love but are unable to, mostly because of the one who needs the help. A wonderful story.
Read the ending with a box of Kleenex nearby.

This movie is kinda boring but it wasn't meant to be like the exciting movies you have today. You saw inside a man's life. How he grew up, falling in love, how hard it was to watch his brother fall and eventually died. It was good in it's simplicity.

Skip It - A River Runs Through It (1992) 123 min. Despite a great cast (Tom Skerritt and Brad Pitt) and director (Robert Redford), I found this film a complete bore.
