Hemingway & Gellhorn Reviews

  • Apr 30, 2021

    Nicole Kidman does a fantastic job as Gellhorn. She successfully portrays Gellhorn as a strong, independent woman. The overall story is okay at best. Great movie for a fun watch, bad movie for its historical attributes.

    Is it over-hyped? Is it over-dramatized? Is it stereotypical? Yes. What this TV movie portrays is the energy of the larger than life personalities that have once walked this earth in times that challenged humanity in ways our generation has not, and cannot fathom. The willingness of oneself to put oneself in harms way for the sake of the good fight, to defend the ideals that one has for what humanity might be, and what it might become, and the rawness of this story is a compelling one... which makes this depiction, a depiction worth watching.

    My last revision was lost. Might have to rewrite this one a couple more times. The first quarter was a bit tedious, but then the romance and passion took off. This is historical, and I was glad to learn about Gellhorn. What an amazing woman! The things she saw and wrote about. Helping the world to understand how horrific war is, can be, was. She didn't run away. She faced it, wrote, and kept going back. I liked it. More another day. *Continued* Another day has finally come so here's a bit more. About Hemmingway....not what I expected but I knew nothing of the real Hemmingway going into this except he was a writer. His personality was something else. He was really brought to life here, his distinctive personality showcased well by Clive Owen and the directing, writing. Interesting guy, not great husband material for the average woman.

    At first this film seemed rather mediocre, but I got more interested and it so did it, until I could appreciate it by the end. I've always liked Clive Owen and David Strathairn, and Nicole kedman did a very good job here. I would recommend a watch, even if Hemingway is not your favorite author.

    At 155 minutes but chronicled with galvanism, Philip Kaufman's biodrama tells the torrid love affair of the titular literary king and distinguished woman war correspondent that survived Spanish Civil War, Winter War in Finland, Second Sino-Japanese War in China and D-Day in Normandy but sadly not at their domestic front.

    Despite really solid performances from Owen and Kidman, this movie was a meandering mess - it needed a strong edit and a more substantial story. Very disappointing.

    Artist -some times what they paint is not who they are. It is the painting thats who they are. If the paintings get stronger and stronger they were here.
