Synopsis by Mark Deming
Shot in the high-definition giant screen IMAX format, this animated feature is adapted from the classic short novel by Ernest Hemingway. An elderly Cuban fisherman, no longer as strong as he once was, takes to the water in hopes of catching a huge marlin and must deal with bad weather, sharks, and other dangers as he does battle with the mighty fish. This film was released in tandem with a ten-minute short subject, Hemingway: A Portrait, which re-enacted several significant events from the great author's life.
