Trivia

In a scene late in the film Hemmingway is seen in a bar reading the July 22, 1944 edition of Collier's magazine which features Martha Gellhorn on the cover and the title of her wartime report "Over and Back". In fact the July 22, 1944 edition of Collier's features Hemingway's wartime report "Voyage to Victory" on the cover and has Gellhorn's one-page piece on page 14. The suggestion in the film is that only Gellhorn reported from Normandy. In fact they both reported from there. See more »

Goofs

While Hemingway is looking for Nazis around Cuban waters he is seen wearing a camo shirt with cut off sleeves. That pattern is Woodland Camouflage and it wasn't available until 1981. See more »

Ambitious but without direction
29 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie left me flat. I was interested in the history and intrigued to see how it was portrayed. Skipping back and forth between the sepia, black and white and colour formats was disruptive. Further I don't think that the two principals did their roles justice. Like Hemingway they tried, almost painfully at times, to be larger than life and it resulted in inconsistent portrayals of these remarkable characters....both are good actors...probably a function of bad direction. The love affair didn't work at all....I guess a combination of things got in the way of my enjoying the movie. Several times I commented "this is not a very good flick" as we watched...and yet we watched it to the end...knowing how it would end....a strange viewing experience. I wanted it to be better and it had such potential to be so.
