New Trailer – Salmon Fishing In The Yemen

Lasse Hallstrom directs Ewan McGregor & Emily Blunt in this drama! The film will be released in Australia by ROADSHOW FILMS.


This is the story of Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist – for whom diary -notable events include the acquisition of a new electric toothbrush and getting his article on caddis fly larvae published in ‘Trout and Salmon’ – who finds himself reluctantly involved in a project to bring salmon fishing to the Highlands of the Yemen – a project that will change his life, and the course of British political history forever. With a wickedly wonderful cast of characters – including a visionary Sheikh, a weasely spin doctor, Fred’s devilish wife and a few thousand transplanted salmon – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is a novel about hypocrisy and bureaucracy, dreams and deniability, and the transforming power of faith and love.
