PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A frustrated son tries to determine the fact from fiction in his dying father's life.
Ewan McGregor was cast as Young Ed Bloom when producers noticed the striking similarity between him and pictures of a young Albert Finney, who plays Senior Ed Bloom.
Young Ed Bloom:
There are some fish that cannot be caught. It's not that they are faster or stronger than other fish, they're just touched by something extra.
Right before Ed is shown parachuting out of the plane, he checks his watch. This watch ticked every second, when in reality there were not quartz watches that ticked in this fashion until the 1970s and 1980s. At the time the movie was set, only mechanical watches were available, and they "swept" fluidly.
