I’m not so sure.
When we were kids, my folks would pull up along a roadside pond in Newfoundland… and set us up with rod and reel to enjoy a day of casting and picnicking.
I’d bring my barbies.
At some point the boredom would take over and I’d cast my rod aside to drive my orange “Barbie Country Camper” over the shale stones. We’d drive until Barbie and Ken found the perfect spot to fold out their yellow and orange plastic lawn chairs and sleeping bags… then relax by the plastic firepit!
To help me discover if fishing’s my thing… Alliance Films has given me, and the readers of Curtains, MORE movie passes! This time to the advanced screening of “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”.
Here’s the synopsis:
“From the beloved director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. A visionary sheik (Amr Waked) has a big dream – to bring salmon fishing to the desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative (Emily Blunt) to turn his dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on for its potential as a ‘good will’ story. Now, 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.”
Here’s the trailer…
