    Movie recommendation

    I recently got a movie from Netflix and when my husband saw the name of it, he thought I'd finally lost what remained of my mind. The movie is called Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Ewan Macgregor and Emily Blunt are in it. I have to say I REALLY liked the movie a lot. It actually made me smile while watching it. The movie ended and DH said that he really liked it as well (amazing, since there weren't things blowing up or people being chased by bad guys). If you've not seen it, I highly recommend it.

    Give us some idea of what it is about, please.

    I also loved Salmon Fishing in the Yemen! Ewen McGregor is so nice to look at and the movie has no sex, no violence, and an interesting story too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I just watched the trailer and it looks like a good sewing room movie.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I've got that in my NF queue as well. Another good movie was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - more great British actors.

    TanyaL - it's kind of hard to describe. The gist is that there is a very wealthy man that wants to bring salmon fishing to the Yemen, and Ewan Macgregor doesn't think it can be done. He gets pulled in to work on the project. (okay, I know I make it sound as exciting as watching paint dry, but I think you'd enjoy it.)
