    • Synopsis
    • ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES is based on the controversial Ernest Hemingway novel which spent seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

      The story centers on American Army Col. Richard Cantwell, who is serving in Italy during WWII. A bona fide war hero, Cantwell faces news of his terminal illness with stoic disregard. Determined to spend his week in quiet solitude, he commandeers a military driver to facilitate what is likely a final duck hunting trip and visit to his old haunts in Venice. As Cantwell's plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a young socialite begins to kindle in him the hope of renewal.

      The story is semi-autobiographical, inspired by Hemingway's own relationship with the daughter of Venetian aristocrats, as well as his experiences as a war journalist for the Toronto Star.
