A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT (Theatrical Release USA 1992)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

A River Run Through It
— well written and greatly acted—deeply engages its audience from opening to concluding scenes. Down-to-earth, the movie catches the human element perfectly without preaching, judging, or depreciating any single lifestyle within this community. This film, directed by Robert Redford, can easily be missed. Don’t miss the opportunity to see it. The fly fishing scenes, small town life, interaction with Native reservations perfectly integrate and synchronize into one harmonious visually symphonic production.
