Storyline

Of all the memorable characters created by Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning author Ernest Hemingway, none was more complicated, more fascinating, or more charismatic than Hemingway himself. Adored by women and the quintessential "man's man," he was husband, father, lover, war correspondent, brawler, adventurer, and a sportsman. Set against the turbulent history of the times, Hemingway reveals his tender and stormy relationships with his four wives, Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gellhorn, and Mary Welsh, each of whom had significant impact on his work.

Should be called " Hemingway's Women"
7 September 2006 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with the previous statement: this "biopic" is far less about Ernest Hemingway's life as an adventurer, writer and novelist as it is about his various romances and his penchant for booze. I missed the original and, finally finding the DVD, was very disappointed at the portrayal of a classic writer as nothing more than a modern Cassanova. The acting is fine at points, it touches at various points and no doubt great lengths were taken to film at "original" locals...but the entire plot is bogged down by a series of romances while the director obviously missed the point: Hemingway was his own man, and was never ruled by women. Maybe that didn't cut it in the "Politically Correct" eighties, but this mini series is a rotten tomato.
