It's a shame Park Chan-wook couldn't get his English-language debut "Stoker" ready in time for Cannes but his leading lady, Nicole Kidman, has still managed to have two films appear on the Croisette this year. While everyone's been talking up her role in "The Paperboy," Kidman also stars opposite Clive Owen in HBO's "Hemingway & Gellhorn" which premieres there before airing next week on the cable channel.

HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN, Nicole Kidman, Clive Owen

It's a shame Park Chan-wook couldn't get his English-language debut "Stoker" ready in time for Cannes but his leading lady, Nicole Kidman, has still managed to have two films appear on the Croisette this year. While everyone's been talking up her role in "The Paperboy," Kidman also stars opposite Clive Owen in HBO's "Hemingway & Gellhorn" which premieres there before airing next week on the cable channel.

The film follows the relationship between journalist Gelhorn and her writer husband Hemingway, from when they first met in a Florida bar in 1936 through to their divorce in 1945. The pair traveled to Spain together during the Spanish Civil War before marrying in 1940, but their relationship became strained. Gellhorn was the only one of his wives to ask Hemingway for a divorce, and later inspired him to write his novel, "For Whom the Bell Tolls."

We've got a pair of images from the film which provide better looks at the leading duo as Gellhorn and Hemingway. Between this and "Killer Elite," is facial hair some sort of pre-requisiste for Owen and his roles these days? Robert Duvall, Rodrigo Santoro, Parker Posey, Molly Parker, Tony Shalhoub, David Strahairn and Peter Coyote also co-star in the film which premieres May 28th on HBO.
