A River Runs Through It
It's hard to believe we've been doing Rialto Recommends for over a year and we are just getting to Robert Redford's beautiful film A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT starring Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer, and Tom Skerritt. A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT is a cinematographically stunning true story of Norman Maclean. The story follows Norman and his brother Paul through the experiences of life and growing up, and how their love of fly fishing keeps them together despite varying life circumstances in the untamed west of Montana in the 1920's. The New York Times raved "Here are two things I never thought I'd say: I like a movie about fly fishing, and Robert Redford has directed one of the most ambitious, accomplished films of the year." While the Hollywood Reporter said "Redford directs with a fluid grace... to capture the idyllic, light-drenched aura of Maclean's early childhood memories. Even the seemingly unexciting fly-fishing sequences take on a magical air worthy of Spielberg." One of our favorite movies A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT is streaming on Fubo, Starz, DirectTV, and HistoryVault. It is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, Apple, GooglePlay, YouTube and others. Take a visit to the Big Sky Country of the 1920's with this moving and deeply felt masterpiece.
