They're retirees who are anything but retiring. Robert Duvall and Richard Harris deliver "two of the year's most spectacular performances" (Bob Campbell, Newhouse Newspapers) as a reserved ex-barber and a salty former sea captain, beached in a quiet Florida town and living solitary lives. But after meeting in the local park one afternoon, these polar opposites soon become the unlikeliest of friends. Randa Haines (Children of a Lesser God, The Doctor) directs and Shirley MacLaine, Piper Laurie and Sandra Bullock co-star in this wonderful film that shows how friendship opens up the two men to life's riches. If you like movies brimming with characters who linger in the memory, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway is "the perfect tonic" (Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today).
