O'Toole is good, but this is a mess. Hemingway is terrible, and the script is just a mess.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
O'Toole once again plays a Lovable Eccentric (which he does to perfection), this time a university-based scientist who's trying to revive his long-dead wife and who serves as mentor for impressionable student Spano. Amiable but aimless adaptation of Jeremy Leven's novel, redeemed only by O'Toole's magnetism.
