In early 20th-century Montana, Col. William Ludlow lives in the wilderness with his sons, Tristan, Alfred and Samuel. Eventually, the unconventional but close-knit family encounters tragedy when Samuel is killed in World War I. Tristan and Alfred survive their tours of duty, but, soon after they return home, both men fall for Samuel's gorgeous fiancée, Susannah, and their intense rivalry begins to destroy the family.Written by
Brad Pitt and Julia Ormond lived in the same house while shooting in Calgary. Pitt recalled "It added to the sexual tension...I'll leave it at that." See more »
During the night of the war, Samuel's cheek was scratched. The next morning him and Tristan were pulled down to a trench, still bearing the scratch on his cheek. Later on that day, he looks at Susannah's picture, without a wound on his cheek. Back at the camp, his scratch appears again. See more »
Samuel, God bless you. You are good at everything you try to do. I'm sure it'll be the same with fucking.
Tristan, really. We're talking about my future wife.
Oh, you're not gonna fuck her?
No! I'm planning to be with her.
I recommend fucking.

I can't believe the bad reviews Legends of the Fall got when it was released. This would have to be one of the best movies around. Everything from the acting to the directing was brilliant and the scenery was breathtaking.
Anthony Hopkins gave another knockout performance as Colonel Ludlow and Brad Pitt was brilliant as Tristan.Aidan Quinn, Henry Thomas and Julia Ormond were perfectly cast as Alfred, Samuel and Susanna.
The one thing I liked most about this movie was the ending - which I won't spoil. It is rare when watching a movie, you cannot pick the ending. The ending to this movie was so amazing, and the fact that it wasn't obvious what was going to happen made this movie more enjoyable.
James Horner is a master. Just like he did with Titanic, the score for Legends of the Fall took the movie to another level.
