Hemingway & Gellhorn debuts on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download on March 19, 2013 and includes bonus materials that delve into the production of the critically-acclaimed film.

    Hemingway & Gellhorn recounts one of the greatest romances of the last century - the passionate love affair and tumultuous marriage of literary master Ernest Hemingway and trailblazing war correspondent Martha Gellhorn - as it follows the adventurous writers through the Spanish Civil War and beyond. The combined magnetism of Hemingway and Gellhorn ushered them into social circles that included the elite of Hollywood, the aristocracy of the literary world and the First Family of the United States. As witnesses to history, they covered all the great conflicts of their time, but the war they couldn't survive was the war between themselves.
