What to know

critics consensus

Predictable but moving, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway is an understated and melancholic drama that gets plenty of mileage out of an outstanding cast that includes Robert Duvall, Richard Harris, Shirley MacLaine, and Sandra Bullock. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Two old men in a Florida town become friends more out of loneliness than compatibility. Ex-sea captain Frank (Richard Harris) is a garrulous teller of tales; Walter (Robert Duvall), a dignified former barber. Frank hopes to bed either the woman he meets at the movies (Piper Laurie) or his flinty landlady (Shirley MacLaine). Walter frequents a café, where he shyly flirts with a young waitress (Sandra Bullock). But it's the bond between the two men that thrives -- until their bitter falling-out.
