Airdate: Hemmingway & Gellhorn

Next month Showcase screens the HBO telemovie Hemmingway & Gellhorn starring Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen.

It also features David Strathairn, Rodrigo Santoro, Molly Parker, Parker Posey, Santiago Cabrera, Lars Ulrich, Saverio Guerra, Peter Coyote, Joan Chen and Tony Shalhoub.

This has 15 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie.

Hemmingway & Gellhorn recounts one of the greatest romances of the last century – the passionate love affair and tumultuous marriage of literary master Ernest Hemingway and trailblazing war correspondent Martha Gellhorn – as it follows the adventurous writers through the Spanish Civil War and beyond. The combined magnetism of Hemingway and Gellhorn ushered them into social circles that included the elite of Hollywood, the aristocracy of the literary world and the First Family of the United States. As witnesses to history, they covered all the great conflicts of their time, but the war they couldn’t survive was the war between themselves.

Wednesday 12th September at 8.30pm on Showcase.
