Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt make an appealing couple in this comedy-drama, directed by Lasse Hallstrom ("The Cider House Rules") and adapted by Oscar winner Simon Beaufoy ("Slumdog Millionaire") from Paul Torday's novel.
The stars play two people who get romantically involved while caught up in an Arab sheik's scheme to make fishing a possibility in the desert. Kristin Scott Thomas also appears. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
