Following the huge success of The Best Marigold Hotel, Rockbourne film night brings you another charming and quirky comedy with a solid gold pedigree.
Director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat)and writer Simon Beaufroy (Slumdog  Millionaire and The Full Monty) have adapted Paul Torday’s best selling satirical novel into a delightful film.
“It’s a disarmingly nice hour and three quarters of gentle romance and even gentler comedy” Daily Telegraph, and from the Daily Mail “Emily Blunt and Scott Thomas are marvellous in what is essentially an entertaining film and a genuine heart-warmer.”
When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realise 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 over-zealous 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.
And to remind you, just in case……
There’s no salmon fishing in Yemen, tourist board warns.
The Yemen tourist board has warned would-be British holidaymakers that it does not have a salmon fishing industry, after a surge of interest due to Ewan McGregor’s new film.
