DESCRIPTION: (from HBO's press release, May 2012) Academy Award(R) nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen and Academy Award(R) and three-time Golden Globe winner Nicole Kidman star in the title roles of HBO Films' HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN, under the direction of Academy Award(R) nominee Philip Kaufman. Kaufman directs from a script by Jerry Stahl and Barbara Turner. Debuting MONDAY, MAY 28 (9:00-11:40 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, HEMINGWAY & 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.
