A passionate love affair between two brilliant writers? Sounds like our kind of movie.
Add in the facts that one of those writers is Ernest Hemingway, played by Clive Owen, and Nicole Kidman is starring alongside him as “a beautiful, trailblazing war correspondent,” and I’m going to have to get a subscription to HBO in time for its release in May.
The internet’s been abuzz about “Hemingway and Gellhorn,” directed by Philip Kaufman, ever since a five-minute trailer of the biopic was leaked earlier this week. The video was taken down almost as soon as it was posted (and, unfortunately, before I got to see it) but those who got to see it promise sex, explosions, exotic locales, and pretty much everything else for which premium cable is known.
