Wrestling Ernest Hemingway aspires to be serious about its subject. Yet in a curious way this sobriety works against it. Frank and Walt turn into schematically contrasting case studies, and the movie's sympathy for them eventually becomes patronizing.
This is a film of two superlative performances from Richard Harris and Robert Duvall, who play an odd couple drawn together by their common loneliness as they become friends in the winter of their lives
I have looked for this movie in my local store since I saw it a few years back on The Hallmark Channel. I didn't know it was actually a Showtime movie until I found it here online. This is a good movie at a good price!!
