A semi-interesting story of one small facet of Hemingway's and Gellhorn's lives
18 August 2012 | by (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

I was disappointed by Kidman's and Owen's acting. There seemed to be no effort made to be truly convincing in their roles, and often their expression made me chuckle. Sophomoric acting, at best. The screenplay was hardly one to wow me. A simplistic take on both these people, with no hint as to Hemingway's confused sexuality. A man fascinated by guns and macho personalities -bullfighters, soldiers, safari hunters. The politics of the time, particularly the Spanish civil war, were glossed over. John Dos Passos, one of the U.S's greatest writers of the 20th century, is portrayed as something of a naive wuss. Maybe some day, some director will make a convincing movie about Hemingway. This was definitely not the case. I watched about 45 minutes, and called it a night.
