It's Hard To Think Of A Less Appealing Title Than Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, But Here We Are

The thing is, it actually looks quite good. Charming, self-effacingly funny, and with a terrific cast: Ewan MacGregor, Emily Blunt, and Kristin Scott Thomas. It's directed by Lasse Hallstrom, whose films can either be beautifully clever and poignant (What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Chocolat) or shmaltzy messes (Dear John). But it's quite an interesting story -- despite the fact that it appears to largely ignore the more serious politics involved. Here's the synopsis:

A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert and embark son an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

Yikes. OK, so based on the synopsis it sounds kind of terrible. Watch the trailer, instead:
