Redford and his writer, Richard Friedenberg, understand that most of the events in any life are accidential or arbitrary, especially the crucial ones, and we can exercise little conscious control over our destinies.
Will always bring me peace This movie has been one of my favorites since I was about 12 years old. The struggle Norman and Paul go through is one that I believe most will be able to relate to. Do we have the unconditional love we need to care for those who refuse our helping hand? In my opinion it's Brad Pitt's best movie. The scenery is wonderful. This movie and the music with it brings me peace and is one I consider to be a classic.
My Favorite. Each time I'm "drawn into" this story I can't help but "feel" nostalgic for moments in time that; though I was never part off, I wish I could "return" to. For the hour and 23 mins. acted out in this excellent filming of a great life story re-told, I escape into that "cinematic" wonderland that has and will continue to capture so many. Well any-whey, to those that enjoy a good story Isn't that what a great story is all about? Like fishing it's self. It's "never" really about the fish. Well done. A keeper.
Favorite film of all time This story of two brothers is a man-flick. It does for guys what Thelma & Louise did for women. Definitely an amazingly evocative film, which won awards for cinematography. This single film instilled in me a love for Montana, until I finally visited in May 2012. This film is slow moving and worth every moment, every line, every scenic shot, and every unsaid expression. Beautiful.
