"Who is that large dirty man in those disgustingly soiled clothes?" Get a longer look at Clive Owen playing Ernest Hemingway and Nicole Kidman as his journalist third wife Martha Gellhorn in the trailer for the upcoming HBO film "Hemingway & Gellhorn," below.

Directed by Philip Kaufman (who hasn't helmed a film since the 2004 Ashley Judd thriller "Twisted") from a script by Jerry Stahl (of "Permanent Midnight") and Barbara Turner, the film traces the writer pair's tumultuous five-year marriage and their experiences covering the Spanish Civil War. The trailer appears mighty sumptuous while also sometimes veering perilously close to looking like a parody of a prestige period drama (consider the way Owen drawls "War correspondant?" while clutching a glass of whiskey).

David Strathairn, Molly Parker, Rodrigo Santoro, Parker Posey and Metallica's Lars Ulrich (!) fill out the cast. "Hemingway & Gellhorn" will premiere on HBO on May 28th. [Go HERE for Indiewire's recent interview with Owen where he discusses taking on the literary icon.]
