The inspirational romantic comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen stars Ewan McGregor as Dr. Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist who one day receives an unusual request. A businesswoman named Harriet Chetwode-Talbot (Emily Blunt, The Adjustment Bureau) wants his help in fulfilling a wealthy sheikh's (Amr Waked) desire to bring sport fishing to Yemen. Jones declines at first, but when the British prime minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to the project as a way to improve Middle East relations, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible. Meanwhile, romance blooms as Jones and Harriet work to make the sheikh's dream come true. Written by Simon Beaufoy (the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire), based on the novel by Paul Torday. Directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, The Cider House Rules).
