Life Education Trust North Shore is organising a film evening fundraiser at Bridgeway Cinemas in Northcote Point, showing a preview of the very funny and extremely British ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’. The Trust is raising funds to operate a second mobile classroom on the North Shore, making the Life Education programme accessible to all Year 1-8 students on the Shore.

Bring your friends for a fun-filled night, while financially supporting the Trust and celebrating people with passion (whether it is in fly-fishing or in education...)

About the movie:
‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’ is a 2011 British romantic comedy-drama film directed by Lasse Hallström and starring Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas. The screenplay is based on the hilarious debut novel of the same name by Paul Torday.

From the beloved director of ‘Chocolat’ and the Oscar-winning screenwriter of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ comes the inspirational comedy ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’. A visionary sheik (Amr Waked) believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative (Emily Blunt) to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a 'good will' story. Now, 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.

A reviewer for the LA Times wrote: “At every film festival, a movie comes along that just lifts your spirits, leaves you feeling good about life and even better about the movies. At this year's Toronto International Film Festival, for me it’s Lasse Hallström’s charmer, ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.’
