Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Blu-ray ($35.99)

A wealthy sheik wants to turn his Arabian desert into an oasis of salmon in this big-screen adaptation of an award-winning novel that spins romance, faith and fishing into a delightful love story about the British financial consultant (Emily Blunt) and the fishing expert (Ewan McGregor) hired to turn the potentate’s seemingly impossible dream into reality. Bonus features include a documentary about making the movie on location in the Middle East and on the British Isles, and another featurette in which author Paul Torday discusses his inspiration for the 2008 book on which the film was based.
