Now on DVD: Papa: Hemingway in Cuba

In 1959, Miami journalist and aspiring writer Ed Myers (Giovanni Ribisi) travels to Havana to meet his idol, Ernest Hemingway (Adrian Sparks). A fascinating and unexpected friendship develops as the legendary author mentors young Myers in deep-sea fishing, drinking — and finding his literary voice — while the Cuban Revolution comes to a boil around them. The first U.S. movie filmed in Cuba in more than half a century, Papa: Hemingway in Cuba offers an extraordinary glimpse into the life of a uniquely American icon.

The movie has a wonderful storyline and is historic in that it is the first feature length Hollywood film shot in Cuba since 1959.  I thought it was a great take on a story we've heard time and time again about one of the world's most beloved authors.  Oh, and the scenery is absolutely beautiful.

Papa:  Hemingway in Cuba is available wherever DVDs are sold including Amazon and Amazon Video.
