The writer and adventurer Ernest Hemingway was fond of life and had a lot of women in it, but no one was unable to compete with Martha Gellhorn, his third wife.
The beautiful and clever military journalist, she was not afraid of risking her life, writing articles under machine-gun fire. She was not afraid of losing her happiness either, when she divorced the mature author after five years of marriage. No wonder that she inspired the writer to create his most famous novel “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”
Sooner or later, this love story would, of course, get its adaptation, and the HBO channel decided to produce it, having called Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman for the leading roles in the Hemingway and Gellhorn movie.
The project turned out so successful that the television film was even taken to Cannes where it was received very warmly. Don’t you think that it was worth it?
