TV: TV Club: Hemingway & Gellhorn
A.V. Club - over 4 years
Hemingway & Gellhorn debuts tonight on HBO at 9 p.m. Eastern Some stories may be too irresistible to the artists who seize upon the idea of telling them. Any handful of the following elements could make a memorable movie: larger-than-life historical protagonists, forbidden love, a war-torn setting, copious alcohol, idealism, cynicism, courage, cowardice, loyalty, betrayal, creative genius, creative blockage, international intrigue, an endless parade of famous people.  But perhaps due to the creative team involved with Hemingway & Gellhorn, this HBO original production tries to include every single one of these morsels of prestige movie catnip.

Annette Insdorf: Cannes Celebrates Philip Kaufman With Hemingway & Gellhorn
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
It's no surprise that Philip Kaufman -- perhaps the most European of American filmmakers -- was drawn to the passionate story of Ernest Hemingway and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn. Kaufman is a consummate adapter of complex novels including The Unbearable Lightness of Being and The Right Stuff, as well as a portraitist of literary powerhouses like Henry Miller (Henry and June) and the Marquis de Sade (Quills). Karen Ballard/HBO Hemingway & Gellhorn is having a world premiere in the Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival before its HBO broadcast May 28. Starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman as the feisty journalist who became Ernest Hemingway's third wife, it's a thematically ambitious, visually rich and superbly acted motion picture. (Kaufman is also being honored in Cannes with the invitation to give the "Master Class." Among those who have previously been accorded this prestigious presentation are Martin Scorsese, Krzysztof Kieslowski, and Stephen Frea ...
