A River Runs Through It

Fine movies, like fine wines, call out to be savored.

Return to Robert Redford’s superb, low-key tale of mismatched brothers who come together, at least for a bit, while wading through crystal-clear waters, fly-fishing like their father.

An early showcase for Brad Pitt as a hard-driving newspaperman, the film chronicles the happy moments and tragic detours of a family headed up by always-strong Tom Skerritt.

I first saw it in a theater with my own dad, a born and bred Montana native.

With the film being set there, River has always retained a special place among my personal movie memories.
