The 2nd of July, 1961: It's Ernest Hemingway's (Jordan Rhodes) last day on earth, and apparently he, at 61, has grown a little wary of his existence. Sure, he has lived life to the fullest, has had more adventures than other people could fit into a lifetime, and on top of that has been named one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century, but the world isn't what it was anymore ... and this is a great starting point for him to reminisce about his career, but not just the high points but also the lows, and about his various wives (all played by Lynn Moore) and his attitude towards love and marriage. And of course, he also talks about war, politics, bullfighting and bare knuckles boxing, about sex and violence - and how much he sees himself out of the loop of late, which leads to only one logical (if not historically proven) solution ...


One thing up front: This is a filmed live performance of the play of the same name, starring co-writer Jordan Rhodes in the title role, so pure cineastes might be a bit put off - but that's their bad, they'll miss a very compelling performance that serves as proof to the power of acting as such. And other than that, this is a really well-scripted play/movie, as it manages to suck even people who have little clue about Hemingway's life (and I'm ashamed to admit I'm one of them) into the story from square one, telling his story with just the right amount of (self-)irony, with a fitting meanness, and an unapologetic view on the writer's life.

In short, no matter whether or not you care about Hemingway in the least or if you like or don't like filmed live performances, if great writing and great acting's your thing, you need to watch this one!
