It was a romance born out of war...and later torn apart by it. This powerful drama recounts one of the great love stories of the 20th century: the relationship between literary giant Ernest Hemingway and trailblazing war correspondent Martha Gellhorn. Written by Jwelch5742

Pretty Bad
30 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Considering the talent involved I expected so much more from this film. The 2 principles were not good. They both seemed not very comfortable in their roles or maybe they just couldn't rise to the occasion, playing 2 historical figures who are so significant. There is a lot of over acting especially when going for a non dialog , reaction shot, other characters seemed as though they weren't really into it. Just reading lines. Sorry but this was really bad.... Some sets were beautiful and some of the b&w shots were interesting but like in pop music you can have the best musicians but you need songs.... The acting and script didn't cut it.. I don't know. As you can see no names mentioned here.... don't want to single anyone out on to the next project I suppose.
