A River Runs Through It (1992)

"A River Runs Through It" is a beautiful 3 time Oscar winning film. It is about life in Montanta years ago for two young brothers Paul (Brad Pitt) and Norman (Craig Sheffer) who love fly fishing. If you haven't seen this film, I highly recommend it for its visual beauty and genius acting from one of my favorites, Brad Pitt. Our recipe Fabulous Fish Fillets with Vegetable Stuffing pays tribute to the jewels of the sea - fish. We are serving up this "jewel' with a vegetable stuffing you will absolutely love. This vegetable combination compliments the fish fillets and takes it to another level. Please enjoy the video trailer clip we have provided of "A River Runs Through It."
