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 Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt have such a rapport and it's so pleasing to see them bouncing off eachother with their unique acting skills. You leave the film not believing that it wasn't real or at least based on a true story...the mark of a true classic!
Something I haven't seen mentioned here (forgive me if I'm wrong, of course) is the music in the film...the score is a masterpiece and some of the best classical music I have ever heard. It no doubt makes the movie what it is and it could not have been the same without it. If this is your thing then I also suggest buying the soundtrack - it takes you to so many places and is well worth having in your collection if you fancy a 'Ludlow' moment or just want to relax. It deserves to be heard on it's own as it raises so many feelings of your own - not just that of the film.
I hope this has been helpful. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to have found this movie - it's definitely a 'can't stop watching' film.
Brad and Anthony are always a good combination. 'Meet Joe Black' was a let down as far as their careers go. But here the duo are just damn cool. I love Brad and Anthony's eyes are so gorgeous! That's a little irrelavant I admit, but as an actor I think he is amazing. He raises his voice in the right places and creates tension that you could cut with a knife. When he banishes Adian from their ranch it is heart wrenching. He shows the most beautiful love for Brad as a father to a son that you could ever imagine in a film. Their relationshiop was believable and moving.
Brad is at his best here and I have to say it was probably one of the most challenging role he has played. With a character that grows and changes in such a dramatic way, I have never seen such a great performance. In addition to all of that he shows the most amazing emotion.
Fantastic film and I would tell everyone to watch it. I never realised I could feel such emotion when watching a film. I love this film and i couldn't fault it.
True to the nature of the Old West, the story told has a big, ambitious vision. It moves along easy, taking it's time to roll-out the tale. The pacing never sags or gets ponderous. You're drawn in and then the involvement just builds inexorably. It's a very fine piece of screen-writing: thrillingly tragic drama of emotional authenticity.
Set in Montana in the 1900s a big part of it's freshness is that it's an Edwardian period vision of a West transitioning into the modern era. It looks stunning thanks to the combined brilliance of John Toll's cinematography and Lilly Kilvert's production design.
Both are inspired to create a beautiful visual lushness and detailed verisimilitude that immerses the viewer in the period world the film inhabits with complete conviction. A look recalling to my mind the great Edwardian pictorialist painters of the West (Remington, Russell & Co.) -- often attempted in Westerns but never better achieved than here. Nice to see Toll and Kilvert honoured with their own maker's commentary track on this collector's edition.
Their inspirational craftsmanship is matched in all departments, however. There's nothing stylistically flashy or gimmicky about the artistic vision of this production. There's no straining to be innovative or fashionable. This is straight-down-the-line, old-fashioned storytelling with no trendy BS to impair the integrity of the tale. One openly unabashed in it's All-American, big budget plushness and romantic turbulence. No tricks; simply impeccable craftsmanship, perfectly executed. A joy.Read more ›
This is a big story, in big country set over several years, following the fortunes of a family from their rather isolationist existance in the wilds of Montana through the horrors of the First World War, to the bootleg Whiskey trade and political machinations of the late 20's.
Centered around the wild and uncompromising middle son, excellently played by Brad Pitt, the story tells how the Ludlow household (Colonel Ludlow, the 3 sons and the ranch hands) is changed by events around it, not least by the introduction of the gorgeous Susannah (Julia Ormand) who becomes the desirable widow of the youngest son.
The story is strong and emotive. You want the love affairs to turn out right, you want justice to be meted out to the villains and you want the family to re-unite at the end.
Frequently classified as a chick flick, this is actually a well told tale with plenty of interest for all.
