The Story of an American Family.
This film is based on the 1976 semi-autobiographical novel A River Runs Through It by Norman Maclean.

Director Robert Redford courted author Norman Maclean for years to gain the rights to his autobiographical novella.

In preparation for his role, Brad Pitt trained himself to fly-fish for four weeks prior to shooting. Since he was not near any river in Los Angeles, he trained on top of a building.
