Hemingway's Garden of Eden Coming to the Big Screen

credit: Lebrecht Authors
I don't know if I will be going to the theater to see this - it seems like a good movie to watch at home on a chilly night but I remember reading this as senior in college during a phase where I was quite taken by Hemingway and Faulkner and I fear this movie won't do the writing justice.

For those of you who haven't read Garden of Eden by Ernest Hemingway, which was published posthumously in 1986, it's the story about an American husband and wife abroad on holiday on the French Riviera and their tryst with a young woman they both fall in love with - mind you, this is a novel he began writing in 1946. It's incredibly sexy..."you aren't very to corrupt and you're an awful lot of fun to corrupt" (love that line!) and explores the dynamic between gender roles, androgyny, and male/female relationships.
