What to know
Nicole Kidman's poised performance provides some measure of reclamation for Martha Gellhorn, but this trite historical melodrama reduces Ernest Hemingway and the era that the two war correspondents lived through into a broad caricature. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Hemingway & Gellhorn
The movie builds a persuasive case for the trailblazing Gellhorn, who worked while Hemingway played. She didn't see herself as a footnote in his life, and this enjoyable movie makes sure she isn't.June 3, 2020 | Full Review…
It may be too much to ask for a TV movie based on historical personages with such tumultuous lives to show some restraint. Then again, "too much" isn't a bad way to sum up the problems of Hemingway & Gellhorn.June 3, 2020 | Full Review…
Kidman manages quietly to evoke something else of this ferocious, aging journalist -- an underlying and unsettling degree of disappointment and hurt.
Kidman's Gellhorn, who periodically narrates the story from the future, reflects that they were "good together in war" and had no idea what to do without it. Neither, in a way, does the film
Kidman practically swaggers through the role, channeling Lauren Bacall to such a degree that I almost expected her to ask co-star Clive Owen if he knows how to whistle.
Though it is clearly based on research, with dialogue that scavenges the principals' own writing, it is never quite believable, either as history or drama.
