    Lovely story, beautifully told. This is a gorgeous setting in which talented actors bring us a tale of the outdoors as well as the human internal landscape. Well done.

    Amber Heard is a dime, but unfortunately this film isn't even worth that.

    Nice coming of age story with fishing as it's central element, but used as a metaphor for a philosophic point of view. Beautiful scenery.

    I can handle slow moving movies, but this one went nowhere. If you are the outdoors type, this may appeal to you for the river scenes. For those who would actually like at least some kind of a plot or storyline, this will bore you to sleep. It almost did me in...not terrible, just super slow, and uneventful.

    This is a movie with some truly amazing natural scenery. The story was a little slow, but overall this was worth a watch for the self-discovery of a young angler.

    Well done if greatly streamlined adaptation of the book. Zach Gilford is fantastic as Gus.

    Likeable enough characters in a bland story. Beautiful cinematography. Worth seeing once.

    It's not the genre of movie I usually like, all nature and thinking. The story is not existing, the dialogues are few and, except the one in the billiard room, not interesting at all. The comment of my brother was: "they put a nice chick, otherwise no one would watch it". Well...I perfectly agree, but, I don't know why, I don't want to fail it completely.
