SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN
MASTERPIECE MOVIE CHANNEL ( FOXTEL), 8.30pm
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.
