DHAKA: Nicole Kidman got a second major outing in Cannes, this time playing a war correspondent who waged her own battle against Ernest Hemingway as the literary lovers roamed the world.
Much of ‘Hemingway And Gellhorn’ deals with the trip by the United States writer, played by British actor Clive Owen, and the journalist to Spain during that country’s brutal civil war in the late 1930s.
The Australian actress told media that she dedicated her role in the new film, which gets its Cannes red carpet premiere later on Friday, to a US woman reporter for Britain’s Sunday Times who was killed this year in Syria.
‘I dedicated my performance of Martha to Marie Colvin, the journalist killed in Syria, because I really see her as someone similar to Martha. These women are still rare and Martha was the first’, she said.
