POP CULTURE: 'Mending the Line': Brian Cox and Sinqua Walls Deliver in Emotional Film (Review)
June 9, 2023
We know that military veterans go through a lot when they return home from active duty. But one thing that has emerged over the years is veterans taking part in fly fishing to deal with PTSD. The new movie, Mending the Line, focuses on that subject matter and stars Brian Cox, Sinqua Walls and Perry Mattfeld. The film tells the story of how fly fishing can help those dealing with combat trauma and emotional distress...
Along with the strong performances, the fishing scenes and the Montana scenery were breathtaking. Director Josh Caldwell makes sure viewers get to see the impact fly fishing has on a person as well as why Montana is unofficially called "The Last Best Place." Mending the Line does enough to carry its message due to the performances of a talented cast. PTSD is an issue that needs to continue to be addressed, and this film could be an option for those looking for a new direction.
