Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
PG, 111 minutes
Ewan McGregor; Emily Blunt; Kristen Scott Thomas
As the amusingly named Harriet Chetwode-Talbot, Blunt helps a Middle Eastern Sheik (Amr Waked) fulfill his madcap dream of salmon fishing in his desert home. To do this she enlists a by-the-numbers fisheries official, Fred Jones (McGregor), who's naturally against the idea of building a river in the VERY dry desert but the scheme is none-the-less put in motion by PR whiz Patricia Maxwell (an over-the-top Kristin Scott Thomas), who intrigues the Parliament which convinces the Prime Minister this is the perfect international goodwill mission. As Talbot and Jones get deeper into the effort to bring the fish over, they become ‘fish out of water' too, particularly as an attraction blooms.
