Contemplative exploration of family ties and coming of age with impact falling just short of the novel's is another well-crafted American tale directed by Redford. Set in Montana during the early part of the century, a Presbyterian minister teaches his two sons, one troubled and one on his way to success, about life and religion via fly-fishing. Based on the novel by Norman Maclean.

Based on the novel by Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It, released in 1992. The movie has a running time of 123 minutes. A River Runs Through It is about the bonding between two sons with their father. Norman Maclean (Craig Sheffer) and Paul Maclean (Brad Pitt) are brothers, yet they are very different. One is rather rebellious, while the other isn’t. The one thing the two boys have in common is fly-fishing. While fly-fishing, their father, Rev. Maclean (Tom Skerritt), teaches them lesson on life.
