This is the second trailer for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. While I think the film should win some award for the weirdest title of the year, the trailer shows some of the funny moments of the film mixed in with interviews with the stars about the film. There is heart to the film. I have seen it already, but I am under embargo, so stay tuned to Lost in Reviews for the review. The film stars Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Amr Waked. The film is written by Simon Beaufoy and directed by Lance Hallstrom.
“From the director of Chocolat and the Oscar-winning(R) screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.”
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is in theatres March 9, 2012.
