Legends of the Fall (1994)


Legends of the Fall is a sprawling, lushly-photographed epic about three brothers, their father, and the woman who weaves among all of them. The film is primarily focused with the middle brother, played by Brad Pitt, who at the time could still be considered an overlooked actor. But this is one of the films that helped cement his stardom, and with good reason, too — he’s terrific in it. Rounding out the cast are Henry Thomas (of E.T. fame, now all grown up), the always-reliable Anthony Hopkins, and the utterly gorgeous Julia Ormond, whose brief reign as Hollywood’s latest “It” Girl began with this film.
