Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor make a charming duo in this unusual, funny, and inspiring story. When Britain's leading fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheikh's 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, played by the always engaging Kristin Scott Thomas, latches on to it as a good will story, this unlikely team will embark on an upstream and transformational journey of faith, fish, self-discovery and late-blooming love.
A distinct delight, brimming over with spirit and surprise. - Rolling Stone
