Salmon fishing in the Yemen (Simon Beaufoy, Paul Torday)
Starring: Amr Waked, Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Rachael Stirling, Kristin Scott Thomas
My thoughts on this film: I am not so sure what to make of it all. I found this to be a cute, amusing and at times not so amusing story. I loved the whole 'you have to have faith' bit plus the typical British jokes that no one seemed to get: On a Sunday instead of going to Church he'd rather go to Tesco's; How the British try to copy Eastenders in terms of classes; etc. There were some funny lines that made you laugh storywise, but nothing over the top. I would say this was a cute, family, typical British movie with the sickening happy ending.
