The gorgeous scenery and poignant melodrama are as sprawling as Brad Pitt's flowing blonde locks in Legends of the Fall, an entertaining, operatic look at three brothers who fall in love with the same woman. Colonel William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins) is a rancher raising his three sons in the Big Sky country of Montana. The once-cavalry man now opposes war on principle and tries to share his wisdom with Alfred (Aidann Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Samuel (Henry Thomas). When Samuel - the youngest - brings home his fiancé Susannah (Julia Ormond), the normally affable boys suddenly find themselves at odds. All fall in love with the girl and all decide to enlist at the outbreak of the Second World War… against their father's wishes, of course. What follows is an epic tale filled with passionate performances and mouth-watering scenery… and Brad Pitt.

Synopsis

This story of a retired, idealistic colonel, his three sons and the woman they all loved became a huge hit and made Brad Pitt a major star and sex symbol. Abandoned by his blue-blood wife, Ludlow raises his sons in the foothills of Montana with the help of two native Americans. When World War I breaks out, the youngest and most idealistic son, Samuel, enlists in the army. Brothers Alfred and Tristan follow suit, more as protectors than as cohorts. Despite their best efforts, however, Samuel dies in battle. Upon returning home, Tristan becomes involved with Susannah, his late brother's fiancee. But, tormented by his inability to save his little brother's life, Tristan abandons her and sets out on a long journey of self-discovery. During his absence, Alfred reveals his own passion for Susannah. Although she does not reciprocate his feelings, Susannah -- who has despaired of ever seeing Tristan again -- agrees to become his wife. But then Tristan does return... setting off a dangerous and terrible conflict between the brothers.
