The MacLean family is presided over by the strict but encouraging Rev. MacLean Tom Skerritt and his loving wife Brenda Blethyn. Craig Sheffer stars as the young Norman, the older son in his family, who takes his school work and writing a bit too seriously for Paul Brad Pitt, the impetuous younger son, to take much stock in.

Overview

Robert Redford's lyrical direction sets the tone for this evocative adaptation of author Norman MacLean's memoir of his idyllic Montana youth. The MacLean family is presided over by the strict but encouraging Rev. MacLean Tom Skerritt and his loving wife Brenda Blethyn. Craig Sheffer stars as the young Norman, the older son in his family, who takes his school work and writing a bit too seriously for Paul Brad Pitt, the impetuous younger son, to take much stock in. Paul would rather have a good time, drink and play cards than get involved with academic study. Where Norman wants to be a college literature professor, Paul would prefer to stay in Montana all his life and wrangle some kind of job writing for a local newspaper. But, ironically, Paul is the better fly fisherman and in this way attains a sense of perfection. The film also details the MacLean boys' involvement with a colorful group of town's people -- including a young Indian woman Paul decides to date and the defiant Jessie Emily Lloyd, whom Norman later marries.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The sure hand of director Robert Redford, his images beautifully rendered by cinematographer Philippe Rousselot, did more than play it safe with the material provided by Norman Maclean's best-selling autobiographical novel about fly-fishing and the connection between father and sons. Set in Montana in the early 20th century, the film is a typical coming-of-age story featuring two sons, one conventional (Craig Sheffer) and one wild (Brad Pitt), and their relationships with their minister dad (Tom Skerritt). In his third directorial effort, Redford showed that he understood mood, pace, and setting like few other contemporary American filmmakers. A River Runs Through It is a mature, contemplative film that put Redford back on track as a director, leading him, a few years later, to the equally adept and perhaps more substantial Quiz Show.

    A masterpiece.

    A moving story of life and love within a family, and the joy and pain that goes with it. Perfectly acted and directed, developing characters in depth. One of the most beautifully shot films of all time. And God flows through it all.
