It would seem that I am partial to quiet, thoughtful stories, and "A River Runs Through It" is another one of these. Craig Scheffer is a talented young actor here, and I loved his portrayal of Norman Maclean. Brad Pitt was tremendous as the talented, gifted and fiery younger brother. I loved the interaction between the brothers, and the music and scenery were very meditative, and quite beautiful. The scenes of the boys fishing were hypnotizingly lovely, and gave you the feel of the beauty and grace of fly fishing, the quiet peacefulness of being out on the water, and the exhilaration of getting a fish to rise. I enjoyed the quiet competitiveness between both the boys, and to an extent between the boys and their father. All these things rung true for me.
