Echoing the other reviews printed here, I must express shock that more people have yet to discover this painfully honest,quiet, gentle and loving film. Featuring outstanding work by Richard Harris (this may be his finest performance!, the incomparable Robert Duvall, Shirley Maclaine, and a gorgeous and graceful Sandra Bullock, "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway" also benefits from a solid script and expert direction that allows human beings to truly live. This witty and softly tragic film contains something for everyone. It is a film about finding soul mates, about love, about facing loneliness and bravely avoiding despair through grace. It is a film about hope. One of the many great crimes in Film history is the fact that so many have overlooked this beautiful and gently profound film. For its most agreeable price, "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway" (watch the film to get the title's meaning), is a safe and inexpensive gamble. If you are a fan of movies that...
Walter and Frank are two old men, having nothing in common other than their loneliness. One day they meet in the park and at the time of their first meeting neither of them could guess how good friends they would become. There is not much I can say about this movie, except that it is very, very good. It's a story about friendship, loneliness, life and aging. The screenplay is great (written by a 21-year-old) and every actor is wonderful. Besides the two fantastic leading men (Richard Harris and Robert Duvall), the cast includes Shirley MacLaine and Sandra Bullock, just before her big breakthrough with "Speed". It's a shame that this movie isn't better known. Everybody should get a chance to see it. Buy this movie. You won't regret it! It's a movie you will remember.
I had never heard of "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway" until a friend suggested that I view it. Wow, what performances the two main actors bring to the screen! I had previously seen Harris in Gladiator, but this film truly proves his talent as one of the finest actors around. Duvall also shines in what is a very realistic performance, showcasing subtle acting at it's best. I was quite surprised the film didn't garner any Oscars as it has all the right elements needed to win many, many awards. And to think that such a wonderful piece of moviemaking was written by a 21 year old. Now that's an accomplishment. Don't let the fact that this film didn't perform well in theatres, rent it for what it is: A great little film with a stellar cast, which even includes Sandra Bullock in one of her first roles. You won't regret it.
