Hemingway or Callaghan could have done better...
31 March 2003 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

Good but not as good as it might have been. The scenes in the Toronto Star newsroom are overwrought. Gordon Pinsent is a wonderfully capable actor but he doesn't remotely resemble the mature Morley Callaghan. And the constant flashbacks create a sometimes disturbing choppiness. Having said that, it's a decent exposition of an interesting piece of Canadian lore. The recreation of Paris in the twenties is very effective And the performances, for the most part, are good. But overall the film tried too hard and in doing so didn't meet its expectations or mine. Rather than basing the film on Callahan's book, it would have been better to use William Burrill's "Hemingway The Toronto Years." But it's still worth watching and CBC deserves credit for taking on this project.
