Re-Connect With Nature And Yourself November 8th

CHATSWORTH, CA – For many, fly-fishing is the ultimate exercise in tranquility, a chance to commune with Nature on its own terms. But for 20-year-old Gus Orviston – “the Mozart of fly-fishing” — it represented the ultimate albatross between his father and living his own life. And sometimes, you have to run far away…so that you can come to your true self. Based on the phenomenal best-seller byDavid James Duncan with over 500,000 copies sold, and boasting an all-star cast including Academy-Award™ winner William Hurt, Amber Heard, Kathleen Quinlan, Zach Gilford, Dallas Roberts and William Devane, The River Why comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD November 8th. Directed by Matthew Leutwyler and set in the breathtaking wilds of Oregon, The River Why arrives with a serene $27.97 for DVD and a tranquil $29.97 for the Blu-ray™.

 

Sick of living in a home shrouded with secrets, lies and a smothering sense of competition, Gus (Gilford, Friday Night Lights) runs away fromhome and the shadow of his famous fly-fishing father (Hurt, Into The Wild, The Incredible Hulk). Determined to live life as he sees fit, Gus makes his new home in a secluded cabin on thebanks of a river where he plans to fish all day. Instead, he is propelled into a quest for self-discovery. An assortment of eccentric characters, including a free-spirited girl (Heard, Zombieland) who shares his fondness for fishing, helps him find his way toward adulthood and love. And, to honor the beautiful Oregon wilderness where The River Why was photographed, the filmmakers strove to keep an environmentally friendly set, thanks to the supervision of a “green” consultant hired specially for the production.
