Get Our Full Review


Except for an interest in fly-fishing, Norman (Craig Sheffer) and Paul (Brad Pitt) are about as different as two brothers can be. Yet for all their diversity, Norman does all he can to protect his younger sibling, even though that sometimes means Paul isn't facing the consequences of his rebellious actions. Directed by Robert Redford, this movie is based on an autobiography written by the eldest brother, Norman Maclean.
