Capping off a busy week of the 65th Cannes Film Festival, Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen joined forces for the premiere of “Hemingway Gellhorn” on Friday night (May 25).
The good looking co-stars were also accompanied by fellow castmate Rodrigo Santoro and director Philip Kaufman at the glitzy Palais des Festivals screening of their HBO movie production.
Per the synopsis, “Hemingway Gellhorn” is “a drama centered on the romance between Ernest Hemingway and WWII correspondent Martha Gellhorn, Hemingway’s inspiration for For Whom the Bell Tolls and the only woman who ever asked for a divorce from the writer.”
Noting that getting the full Cannes treatment for a TV movie isn’t an ordinary occurrence, Kaufman told Deadline, “I don’t think they have ever done this with an American movie before. There was Carlos which was a miniseries made for French TV but Olivier Assayas is Cahiers Du Cinema and this is a French film festival. What an honor for me for a movie made for television to be selected here. I know HBO is thrilled.”
