TCP: Outdoor Adventure

It's another edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes. My entry for this week which is about a Great Outdoor Adventure is a very wonderful movie "A River Runs Through It". If you want to join us, just click the button above.

The story traces the relationship between two brothers growing up in an emotionally constricted household headed by a Presbyterian minister. The scholarly Norman follows in the footsteps of his stern, stoic father, going to college, marrying and settling down. His older brother Paul -- daring, handsome and athletic -- chooses the more glamourous career of newspaper journalist. These two very different brothers are brought together through the years by a mutual love of fly fishing instilled in them by their unyielding father. As Norman watches his brother's seemingly charmed life dissolve under the influences of gambling and alcohol, the art of fly fishing becomes a poignant metaphor for the love their father was unable to express in any other way.
