HBO Canada Presents Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen in Hemingway & Gellhorn

  • HBO Films' latest epic, directed by Philip Kaufman, premieres Monday, May 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET/MT, day-and-date with HBO in the US

TORONTO, May 16, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Recounting 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 - HBO Films' Hemingway & Gellhorn comes to HBO Canada, a multiplex channel of Astral's The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada), on Monday, May 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET/MT.

Starring Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Clive Owen and Academy Award and three-time Golden Globe winner Nicole Kidman in the title roles, the film follows the adventurous writers from Florida to Spain to Cuba, through the Spanish Civil War, the Japanese invasion of China 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.
