ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES by BAFTA-winner, Peter Flannery.
The story focuses on Richard Cantwell, an American officer serving in Italy during WWII, who faces news of his terminal illness with stoic disregard. Determined to spend his weekend in quiet solitude, he commandeers a military driver to facilitate a simple duck hunting trip and a visit to his old haunts in Venice. As Cantwell’s plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a young countess begins to kindle in him the hope of renewal. Based on the last full-length Hemingway novel published in his lifetime, ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES captures a fleeting moment of immortality, where time stands still. The story contains the great Hemingway themes of love, war, youth and aging.AcrossTheRiver_Brosnan_5.12.16
