They're retirees who are anything but retiring. Robert Duvall and Richard Harris deliver "two of the year's most spectacular performances" (Bob Campbell, Newhouse Newspapers) as a reserved ex-barber and a salty former sea captain, beached in a quiet Florida town and living solitary lives. But after meeting in the local park one afternoon, these polar opposites soon become the unlikeliest of friends.
Randa Haines (Children of a Lesser God, The Doctor) directs and Shirley MacLaine, Piper Laurie and Sandra Bullock co-star in this wonderful film that shows how friendship opens up the two men to life's riches. If you like movies brimming with characters who linger in the memory, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway is "the perfect tonic" (Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today).

the performances were so real... Robert Duvall and Richard Harris were every man I have known put into just two. I loved this film entirely... Shirley MacLain's face and body language said so much more than her lines - she was amazing and her eyes spoke volumes. I could feel Robert Duvall's tight personality relax and tighten... love and worry... Richard Harris -- oh my God, he could not give up his Glory Days (everyman) and he was just one of those men who wants to love but just isn't good at it. Never was... one line, he says something about going to sea as a young man when he could have gone home, because he wanted to be alone... and then says something about -- and I am. I felt this movie as much as I watched it. Prior to that day, and seeing Sandra Bullock on Jay Leno... I had never heard of it. I saw myself and the people I love in the characters.
Love this movie. The acting is superb, the setting is wonderful, the story line is touching. I'm a Richard Harris/Robert Duvall fan, so that might color my opinion, but they were both at their bests here. Sandra Bullock and Shirley McClain (sp?) were also very effective - not the bubbly Sandra here, just good acting. And Shirley has become a fine character actress. Not an action picture, but a character-driven sweet story.
