Aroview: Expansive 3-part documentary on the life of American writer Ernest Hemingway, exploring both his life and his extraordinary writing, which had a profound influence on 20th century fiction.

Ken Burns and long-time collaborator Lynn Novick explore the person and the myth in great depth, unafraid of acknowledging the problematic aspects of Hemingway's character to present a wonderfully three-dimensional portrait of this fascinating literary icon. Jeff Daniels and Meryl Streep breathe life into his letters, short stories and other writings, voicing him and his third wife, war correspondent Martha Gellhorn.
