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.

    Hi there, thanks so much for adding the credit. As long as your changing things, could you please make it Karen Ballard/HBO since I was the unit photographer for them.

    As a friend and colleague of photographer Karen Ballard who took these excellent photos, I'm wondering why she hasn't been given proper credit? thanks!

    To answer your question: Because these photos are on the Cannes website for press use with zero accreditation to them. We wouldn't know who to credit. Essentially, if you're press, you have free access to these photos and NONE of the 30-something films on the press site have photo info, so your beef would be with Cannes. That said, we'll add her name, cheers.
