Story


From the director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Slumdog Millionaire" comes the inspirational comedy "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen". When Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh's (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a "good will" story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..no wonder the invasively upbeat scoreand the obviously reshot ending, which would have played either outrageously comedic or profoundly tragic in its original form, but instead just brings our attention back to the fish..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..you can pretty much guess the rest..”
by Ella Taylor [NPR]
“..a mushy combination of dreamy travelogue..”
by David Fear [Time Out New York]
