Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s latest documentary film, airing over three evenings beginning tonight, explores the life of iconic writer Ernest Hemingway. It paints an intimate picture of Hemingway the author — who captured on paper the complexities of the human condition in spare and profound prose, and whose work remains influential around the world — while also penetrating the myth of Hemingway the man’s man to reveal a deeply troubled and ultimately tragic figure. Tonight’s first installment covers the author’s early life from 1899-1929, including the successes of his short stories, and novels The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms.
Tom’s (James Nesbitt) superior is arrested and interviewed, but Tori (Lisa Dwan) worries there’s not enough evidence for a conviction. Niamh (Charlene McKenna) remains unconvinced that they’ve finally caught Goliath and starts her own investigation.
