Hemingway “loved being in love,” commented writer Michael Katakis. “He married four times over the course of his tumultuous life and had three sons. His relationships with women – his mother, sisters, wives, and the World War I nurse who broke his heart – profoundly affected his work.” And yet, as the riveting series so remarkably points out, in his novels he writes about these people with sensitivity, nuance, and clarity.

HEMINGWAY is an engaging and beautifully constructed character study and proof that whatever Burns chooses to cover as a filmmaker will more than likely become the definitive documentary on that specific topic. In Hemingway’s case, it’s a story that is a lot more sensitive than one could’ve imagined.
Leave it to the legendarily thorough and consistently brilliant Ken Burns and Lynn Novick to go far beyond the easy clichés and deliver the definitive biography of arguably the most famous and accomplished and celebrated writer of the 20th century. It’s essential viewing for those only passingly familiar with Hemingway and might be motivated to sample his works after watching the series.
