Product Description

Product Description

Starring two of today’s most acclaimed actors, and directed by Oscar nominee Philip Kaufman (in his first film for television), Hemingway & Gellhorn tells the story of the passionate love affair and tumultuous marriage between Martha Gellhorn (Kidman) and Ernest Hemingway (Owen), following the adventurous writers through all the great conflicts of their time – from the Spanish Civil War and beyond. Considered by many to be the greatest of all war correspondents – man or woman – Gellhorn’s drive and success catapulted her beyond the confines of her marriage into a revered and respected career independent of Hemingway’s. Epic in scale, with masterfully woven archival footage, Hemingway & Gellhorn offers a unique glimpse at a powerful relationship born and torn by war.

One of the best HBO Films I have seen. Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman are sizzling in this one. The film has terrific dialogue, convincing characters, special effects and cinematography is absolutely amazing. Supporting cast is equally terrific. The only problem I had with this film is that I did not want it to end. Hemingway and Gellhorn fascinating and passionate human beings who lived and loved with courage and conviction. Not to be missed!

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 23 2014
Format: DVD
"Hemingway and Gellhorn" should have been amazing. It's produced by HBO, based upon Ernest Hemingway's relationship with his third wife Martha Gellhorn. It has a very talented cast including Nicole Kidman, Clive Owens, Parker Posey, Rodrigo Santoro and Tony Shalhoub.

All the ingredients are there. And yet... it fall completely flat. Instead of a passionate story of two intelligent, adventurous writers whose lives briefly intersected in marriage, we get a flabby tale of a two obnoxious rich Americans who dabbled in important wars when they weren't warring with each other.

Martha Gellhorn (Kidman) first encountered Ernest Hemingway (Owens) at a bar in 1936, where he was showing off a dead marlin he had caught -- and after trading poorly-written quips, she is invited to his home where he hangs out with various friends. She is inspired to go to Spain to cover the civil war that is happening, and it turns out that Heminway is also going there, helping his friends shoot a documentary about the war.

During their time in Spain, they quickly embark on an affair, despite Hemingway being married to his second wife Pauline (Molly Parker). After he divorced Pauline, they later married and embarked on a new life together, traveling and changing the world with their writing -- his novels and her war correspondence. But their relationship was not destined to last.

It's hard to put your finger on exactly why "Hemingway and Gellhorn" doesn't work as a movie. But one important factor is that the true story of Gellhorn and Hemingway has been "Hollywoodized" -- the story has been stripped down, squashed into a mold, and dropped in a misshapen, bland form into our laps.
