A 1936 meeting between novelist Ernest Hemingway and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn sparks a nine-year relationship dominated by a volatile romance that nearly rivaled the combat zones into which they threw themselves in Spain, China, and World War II. ~ Joe Friedrich, Rovi
While Ernest Hemingway was an original and celebrated author, his relationships with women left much to be desired. It would seem that the strong and spirited Martha Gellhorn would have been his ideal partner, but such was far from the case, as she maddened him with her strength and independence. My favorite parts of the story were the scenes that looked like old films, but with Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman appearing beside Eleanor Roosevelt and other notables. Quite an accomplishment!
