Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

MUST-SEE: There's no point in denying the possibility of a movie failing to please when it involves two adorable Brits and fishing as a way to illustrate overcoming the impossible. So I won't. It was fabulous.

A feel-good movie that's overdue in theaters (probably since you saw Director Lasse Hallstrom's previous happy flicks, Hachi, Chocolat or Something to Talk About) introduces us to Miss
Chetwood-Tolbert and Dr. Jones--two quirky, witty and irresistibly innocent individuals completely unaware that they're looking for a happier life. Keenly played by Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor, they're intertwined via a project to introduce salmon fishing into the Yemen. Theoretically, it's impossible, and the feat undeniably teaches our protagonists a little something about faith, hope and camaraderie.

The story is light, tender and just funny enough to appeal to any audience. From beginning to end, nothing left me unsatisfied, confused or comparing it to something else. Truly, it's been awhile since a movie left me feeling so good, and I definitely want to make sure you get to experience it too.
