I had high hopes when I saw this would be on PBS. I love the films of Ken Burns and didn’t know much about Hemingway, so I thought this would be a great introduction to the author. Sadly, I didn’t get past the second episode. I’m all for the first episode because it taught me about the author, but the second one featured too much death and the killing of animals. I understand that’s what made him who he was, but it didn’t have to be so violent or stomach churning. Sorry. I couldn’t stomach it. Maybe someone else can, but not me.
