Salmon Fishing in the Yemen 2011
111 mins United Kingdom Director. Lasse Hallström
Fred Jones (Ewan McGregor) is an uptight fisheries scientist who is talked into introducing Scottish salmon to the Yemen by the Sheik's London representative Harriet Chetwode-Talbot (Emily Blunt). When the project gains unlikely backing from a prime minister's office in need of a good-news story, Fred finds himself suddenly unreeling. A charming, witty rom-com adapted by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire).
