Maclean’s Dream of Communication

A piece written in 1992 by Washington Post staff writer Toby Thompson centers around the release of Norman Maclean’s beloved novella turned film by Robert Redford, “A River Runs Through It.” It traces Redford’s own artistic and personal development through its lens.

“As Maclean suggests, neither fishing nor fish were what drew his family to the river. It was the dream of communication,” writes Thompson. Quoting, “Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.”
