Ed Myers en la película. El veterano actor de teatro y pantalla Adrian Sparks interpreta a Hemingway; Joely Richardson a su esposa, Mary Hemingway y Minka Kelly como Debbie Hunt. James Remar interpreta Santo Trafficante, conocido por ser el más poderoso mafioso en la era Batista Cubana. Gregorio Fuentes, el legendario compañero de Hemingway del Pilar, es interpretado por el actor cubano local Eduardo Almirante. Jeffrey Lyons de WCBS Radio dice: "Seguro que será una de las mejores películas del año. Una representación convincente de la más grande novelista del siglo 20.”
A young Miami Herald journalist is befriended by Ernest and Mary Hemingway and witnesses Hemingway's decline into depression and alcoholism with the backdrop of the Cuban Revolution.
PAPA is the first Hollywood film to shoot on location in Cuba since the 1959 revolution. The film marks a watershed moment in that Yari and his multinational crew filmed almost entirely in and around Havana, Cuba. A cultural milestone, helmed by an American director with Hollywood actors, a film of this significance has not been produced in Cuba in over 50-years. Bob can speak to the incredible hurdles he and his team had to overcome to shoot down there – including getting rights from State Department to shoot in Cuba based on "documentary," and the access the crew had to shoot in Hemingway’s original Cuban home. This exclusive access had never been granted before to any feature production – or even the public.
