Cooper & Hemingway: The True Gen

Selected by The New York Times as a Critic's Pick, COOPER AND HEMINGWAY THE TRUE GEN looks back at the fascinating and unlikely friendship of Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper. From 1940, when they first met, until their untimely deaths a mere seven weeks apart in 1961, Cooper and Hemingway connected, collided, clashed, and reconnected in Idaho, New York, Cuba, LA, and Paris. Seen against the panorama of the turbulent 20th Century, COOPER AND HEMINGWAY is more than the story of a unique friendship; it is an exploration of the changing ideals of what defines a hero, what acts can be called courageous and what defines the sometimes fragile ideal of masculinity.

With on-camera interviews, including: Elmore Leonard, Kirk Douglas, Jim Harrison, Stephen Prince, Patrick Hemingway, A. E. Hotchner, Brian Garfield.
