Ernest Hemingway is the kind of grandiose figure that it seems it would be difficult to contain within the framework of a feature film, and the decision to pair his life with that of his ex-wife Martha Gellhorn only adds to the task at hand. But with the leisure of a two-and-a-half hour running time, a starry ensemble, the guiding hands of director Philip Kaufman ("The Right Stuff," "The Unbearable Lightness Of Being") and the support of HBO, "Hemingway & Gellhorn" is a messy, but still worthwhile film about the two writers that does a strong job of bringing their complex, explosive and committed relationship to the big screen.

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.

With Corey Stoll winning all kinds of attention thanks to his comedically deadpan take on Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," Clive Owen will suddenly find his performance as the great author under much more scrutiny in the upcoming HBO film, "Hemingway & Gellhorn."
