Western Times - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Tues­day, nine, 1pm, PG (2011)

Based on the best-sell­ing novel by Paul Tor­day and di­rected by Lasse Hall­strom , this feel-good flick tells the story of an ob­scenely wealthy sheik, Muhammed (Amr Waked), who wants to do the im­pos­si­ble: bring salmon fish­ing to Ye­men. En­list­ing the help of am­bi­tious busi­ness woman Har­riet

(Emily Blunt) and fish­eries ex­pert Dr Al­bert Jones (Ewan McGregor), to­gether the three go against the odds in a tale of faith against re­al­ism. Blunt and McGregor have buck­et­loads of chem­istry to­gether, while Kristin Scott Thomas is hi­lar­i­ous as the sec­re­tary who spots a PR an­gle in the story.
