A Farewell To Arms
The powerful, romantic story of forbidden love, based on the best-selling novel by Ernest Hemingway, set in Italy during the first World War.
“A Farewell to Arms” is a classic, well-made film from 1932, and it’s based on Ernest Hemingway’s timeless novel. It stars Gary Cooper as an American soldier named Frederic and Helen Hayes as his love interest, Catherine. In a nutshell, Frederic works for the war effort as an ambulance driver, and Catherine is the English nurse he falls in love with in Italy during World War I.
The story is dramatic. Will both Frederic and Catherine survive the war? Their love is strong, and they both worry something may spoil it, such as death. You will have to watch to see how it ends, but rest assured it is considered a classic for a reason and is still an enjoyable viewing experience. We are thrilled to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12-plus. “A Farewell to Arms” showcases relevant themes, such as love, the cruelty of war, and the need for hope. The images at the conclusion of the movie are powerful, and many viewers will be moved.
