A Farewell to Arms

A Farewell to Arms is a potent love story set against the heartbreaking backdrop of war. Lieutenant Frederic Henry is an American soldier serving in the Italian Ambulance Corps in WWI who falls in love with a young British nurse and is determined to be reunited with his sweetheart. A forgotten masterpiece, Frank Borzage’s film of Ernest Hemingway’s novel is both a persuasive picture of the nightmare that was WW1 and a deeply affecting tribute to the transcendent power of love.
