Watch all three eposides of "Hemingway"

A three-part, six-hour documentary film that examines the work and the turbulent life of Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest and most influential writers America has ever produced. Interweaving his eventful biography, a life lived at the ultimately treacherous nexus of art, fame, and celebrity, with carefully selected excerpts from his luminous short stories, novels, and non-fiction, we will see beyond the façade of the public man, becoming intimately familiar with this brilliant, ambitious, charismatic, and egocentric genius.

Directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, written by Geoffrey C. Ward, and produced by Sarah Botstein, Lynn Novick, and Ken Burns. Voice Actors Include Jeff Daniels as Hemingway; Meryl Streep, Keri Russell, Mary Louise Parker, and Patricia Clarkson as Hemingway’s four wives.
