Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen and Academy Award® and three-time Golden Globe winner Nicole Kidman star in the title roles of HBO Original Movie HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN which premieres for the first time in Asia on Monday, June 4, at 7.15pm exclusively on HBO.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee Philip Kaufman, 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.

HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN also stars Academy Award® nominee David Strathairn (Goodnight, and Good Luck, HBO’s Temple Grandin), Rodrigo Santoro (I Love You Philip Morris, 300), SAG Award nominee Molly Parker (The Road, HBO’s Deadwood), Golden Globe nominee Parker Posey (Superman Returns, A Mighty Wind), Santiago Cabrera (Che: Part 1), actor-musician Lars Ulrich (Get Him to the Greek, founding member of Metallica), Saverio Guerra (Lucky You), Emmy® nominee Peter Coyote (Erin Brockovich), Joan Chen (The Last Emperor) and Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk, HBO’s Too Big to Fail).

HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN is executive produced by Peter Kaufman (Quills, Henry and June), Trish Hofmann (Notorious, The New World), Emmy® winner James Gandolfini (HBO’s Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq and Wartorn 1861-2010), Emmy® nominee Alexandra Ryan (HBO’s Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq) and Emmy® nominee Barbara Turner (Petulia, Pollock).
