In Love and War is at its best photographing stationary objects, such as architecture, trees and bedridden soldiers -- not exactly what one hopes for from a movie portraying such a vital force as Ernest Hemingway.

Not as bad as you'd expect. Good for a rainy day.

Good cast. Heartwarming movie about love during WWI. Chris plays a young Ernest Hemingway who falls for an older nurse during the war.
Dannielle Albert
