John Irvin’s ‘Garden of Eden’ is quite the visual spectacle

7 December 2010 1:37 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Erin Darling

HollywoodNews.com: “Garden Of Eden” is a film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel of the same name, which was released posthumously in 1986. Nearly thirty years later, it is still considered to be one of his most mysterious and controversial works. Screenwriter James Scott Linville and Director John Irvin attempt to capture the provocative nature of this novel, succeeding in most departments.

The film follows David Bourne (Jack Huston), a young American writer on his European honeymoon with new wife, Catherine (Mena Suvari). Catherine, a wealthy socialite, becomes bored on the lavish vacation and begins to lust for new locales and sexual taboo. It begins with cutting off her long hair and experimenting with gender roles, but quickly moves to inviting a bisexual woman, Marita (Caterina Murino), into their lives and eventually into their bedroom. What begins as a game or a desperate cry for attention, soon »

Review: Garden of Eden Isn't Just Lesser Hemingway; It's the Worst of Him

7 December 2010 7:40 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Though based on the Hemingway novel published 25 years after his death, Hemingway's Garden of Eden feels more like the result of an ungodly alliance between Harlequin house writers and the cut-and-paste masterminds at A&E Biography. Hemingway worked on the novel from 1946 until his death, leaving its 200,000 words unpublished. The story is roughly autobiographical, derived in part from to his second marriage (to wealthy Pauline Pfeiffer), but allusions to Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, whom Hemingway reviled, seem to figure as well. As adapted by former Paris Review editor James Scott Linville and directed by John Irwin, The Garden of Eden suggests the bad first novel that Hemingway never wrote. There's a reason This Side Of Paradise never made it to the screen. »

Hemingway.S Garden Of Eden

Synopsis:

An adaptation of Nobel laureate Ernest Hemingway.s novel, The Garden of Eden, which was published posthumously in 1986 to great success.  The novel remains one of the author.s most debated novels and is considered a departure from Hemingway.s usual work as it is widely accepted the novel is far more reflective of his personal life, perhaps even semi-autobiographical.  The fact the book was not published until after Hemingway.s suicide has sparked debate as to whether the erotic nature of it was such that he never wished it published at all.

Set in the jazz age of the 1920s, the story follows a successful young American writer, David Bourne (Jack Huston), and his beautiful wife, Catherine (Mena Suvari), on their extended honeymoon in Europe. Catherine soon becomes restless and starts to test her husband.s devotion, pushing him to the limits of »

Roadside Attractions Dusts Off 'Garden Of Eden'

19 October 2010 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A film to screen adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel that hardly made a blip on the radar apart from an appearance at the Rome Film Festival in 2008, I think Roadside Attractions might have found their bargain bin equivalent in their latest pick-up. The pic gets a December 10th release. The John Irvin-directed Garden of Eden is set in the jazz age, and tells the story of a successful young American novelist (Jack Huston), previously an aviator during Wwi, who embarks on an extended honeymoon across Europe with his wife (Mena Suvari). But when she brings in a sultry Italian girl (Caterina Murino) to spice things up with erotic games, their relationship comes under pressure. The novel was adapted by ex-Paris Review editor James Scott Linville. The book, Hemingway's last, was published posthumously in 1986. »
