Overview

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).
