In 1959, Miami journalist and aspiring writer Ed Myers (Giovanni Ribisi) travels to Havana to meet his idol, Ernest Hemingway (Adrian Sparks). A fascinating and unexpected friendship develops as the legendary author mentors young Myers in deep-sea fishing, drinking — and finding his literary voice — while the Cuban Revolution comes to a boil around them. The first U.S. movie filmed in Cuba in more than half a century, Papa: Hemingway in Cuba offers an extraordinary glimpse into the life of a uniquely American icon.
This wonderful film takes us on a journey to the past and into the life of one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. In the film, Ed Myers visits Havana in the hope of learning from Ernest Hemingway, an author he has always admired. Through Hemingway he learns just as much about living and enjoying life as he does about writing the next great novel, even in the midst of the Cuban revolution which is creating chaos all round them
This was a great film that really gives you some unique insight into the life of Hemingway, and general life in Cuba. To make it even more interesting, this was the first film actually shot in Cuba in over fifty years, so you're getting to see some amazing footage along with an excellent story-line. Adrian Sparks was brilliant as Hemingway. If you want to grab a copy of this fantastic DVD for yourself, you can find it in stores nationwide or online at Amazon.
