"Hemingway's Garden of Eden"

A bit of news... December 10th will see the US release by Roadside Attractions of "Hemingway's The Garden of Eden."

"The Garden of Eden" has long been my favorite of Hemingway's novels.  Like all his best work, it gives you the look and feel of places (in this case the Cote d'azur in the 1920s), but also the sensuous thrill of what the world offers, the excitement of complex relationships, and the tension of sexual intrigue.  I only hope the film lives up to this great book.  (I suppose I should mention that I'm biased since I wrote the screen adaptation.)

A glimpse here:

The trailer can be seen here, or here.

And more information here.  Announcement here, here with commentary here... by ace blogger Liberty London Girl here.

And The Paris Review Daily reports on a New York screening at Tribeca Grand Hotel HERE... Vanity Fair interview HERE, and another by the wonderful Christine Spines on Random House's Word & Film site HERE.

Finally my account of a fit of overwhelming insecurity, film-related, in the FT HERE.
