SALMON FISH­ING IN THE YE­MEN

MAS­TER­PIECE MOVIE CHAN­NEL ( FOX­TEL), 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

It’s not just the leads that look good in this 2011 Bri­tish rom- com­m­drama di­rected by Lasse Hall­strom. Ewan McGre­gor ( right) stars rs as fish­eries ex­pert Dr Al­fred Jones, who is ap­proached by con­sul­tant ant Har­riet ( Emily Blunt) to help re­alise a sheik’s vi­sion of bring­ing the sport of fly- fish­ing to the desert. Ini­tially all busi­ness, McGre­gor’s awk­ward po­lite­ness con­trasts spec­tac­u­larly with Blunt’s mea­sured con­fi­dence, with the two soft­en­ing as their friend­ship de­vel­ops. An in­trigu­ing piece with its heart in the right place.
