A River Runs Through It 

Thursday, Oct. 8

"The world is full of bastards."

"The world is full of bastards."

Beyond tying flies and deciding which will best catch trout in the river, there's a lot to be learned from fly fishing. Norman Maclean's classic memoir, A River Runs Through It, shares the lessons he learned growing up in western Montana under the strict parenting of a minister.

Every morning was spent in religious study but the afternoons allowed for an escape to the Blackfoot River. Thanks to Boise Classic Movies, you can skip the 250 pages and instead enjoy the artful film adaptation at the Egyptian Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 8.

As Maclean writes, "the world is full of bastards, the number increasing rapidly the further one gets from Missoula, Montana." Luckily, Boise isn't too far away.
