Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When people lament the lack of sophisticated adult entertainment at the movies these days, Hemingway & Gellhorn is exactly the sort of movie they're pining for"
‑ Scott Foundas, Film Comment Magazine
"Certainly one expects as bit more from the likes of director Philip Kaufman."
‑ Mark Rozeman, Paste Magazine
"Hemingway & Gellhorn is a magnificent film, joining the ranks of Kaufman's best."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Hemingway and Gellhorn suffers because the story of a woman not wanting to be the footnote in her partner's career, whose message inadvertently becomes the footnote in a meandering mess of a biopic."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"Kidman is strong here as Martha Gellhorn, using her exceptional figure and old-fashioned movie star glamour to full effect."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"Acclaimed writers don't ring true in mature HBO biopic."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Despite a globetrotting atmosphere of world history and lustful motivation, director Philip Kaufman falls short of a fulfilling screen investigation."
