Combined with our love of junking, paired with the spirit of the road trip, we travel around the West Coast in our Airstream trailer. We scour flea markets, thrift stores, estate & yard sales to bring back lovelies to our vintage shop located in the quaint town of San Luis Obispo, California.
After a long string of movies at the Palm Theater that didn't exactly peak my interest, I found a great one! Starring the Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor, this film combines excellent cinematography, perfectly placed moments of comic relief, beautiful and talented actors, and a just wild enough to be believable storyline.
McGregor plays a sensible government expert on fishing who gets dragged into the project of bringing salmon to the Yemen River, by a consultant played by Blunt. While working on accomplishing this, the two learn invaluable life lessons from the man behind the idea, a wealthy Sheik, and begin to see the world in a different perspective.
I went into the movie a little worried it would revolve completely around the sport of fishing, but was happily surprised how well they used the past-time to exemplify the importance of faith and hope, as well as common ground between two seemingly opposite people. Definitely a must see for any lovers of Ewan McGregor, fishing, British films, and uplifting movies.
