This is an epic story of three brothers bound by loyalty, tested by war, and torn apart by love. Brad Pitt stars as Tristan, the wildest of the Ludlow sons, whose failure to protect his brother puts his entire family on a path of betrayal and self-destruction. From the battlefields of Europe to the farthest reaches of civilization, LEGENDS OF THE FALL follows Tristan's turbulent journey from boyhood to manhood to legend. Also starring Anthony Hopkins, Aidan Quinn, Julia Ormond and Henry Thomas.
A box-office hit when released in 1994, this sprawling, frequently overwrought familial melodrama may get sillier as its plot progresses, but it's the kind of lusty, character-based epic that Hollywood should attempt more often. It's also an unabashedly flattering star vehicle for Brad Pitt as Tristan--the rebellious middle son of a fiercely independent Montana rancher and military veteran (Anthony Hopkins)--who is routinely at odds with his more responsible older brother, Alfred (Aidan Quinn), and younger brother, Samuel (Henry Thomas). From the battlefields of World War I to his adventures as an oceangoing sailor, Tristan's life is full of personal torment, especially when he returns to Montana and finds himself competing with Alfred over Samuel's beautiful widow (Julia Ormond), whose passion for Tristan disrupts the already turbulent Ludlow clan. Under the wide-open canopy of Big Sky country, this operatic tale unfolds with all the bloodlust, tragedy, and scenery-chewing performances you'd expect to find in a hokey bestselling novel (in fact, it's based on the acclaimed novella by Jim Harrison), but it's a potent mix that's highly entertaining. Not surprisingly, John Toll won an Academy Award for his breathtaking outdoor cinematography. --Jeff ShannonSee all Editorial Reviews

I think this film is BEAUTIFUL. FEELINGS, EMOTIONS, SCENERY...kind of awesome. I found it's rare to watch men emoting love, hate, distrust, anger and fear so OPENLY. So BEAUTIFULLY...so...TRUTHFULLY.
I LOVE this movie, and the men within NEVER fail to give me hope, HOPE that REAL men will take take the hint.... A real woman yearns for a REAL MAN. A man unafraid to share emotions...Hope, Love, Fear, Pain, Adoration......wow.
an American literary masterwork. The movie, although quite good, and an abiding love story, only fails a bit in comparison to the book. That flaw is mine, not the film's. I am not as visual as my wife. Too late to learn?
There is a small section that will disturb some, but it is of war, and what that particularly insane manner of behavior can pulse
and twist and echo in its survivors. Brad Pitt, everyone's supernaturally handsome star, captures that rage beautifully--a handsome demon worthy of Poe.
On my wife's behalf I'll add a fifth shadow star. She knows an enduring love story when she sees one. Makes why she married me such a mystery. Mind the voice of One Stab, the narrator: a gift to both the book and the film. We exist at the mercy of this rock we live on and the only certainty is our own impermanence. You can feel that in this story.
