A Love StoryBook - 2016
In the summer of 1850, Herman Melville finds himself hounded by creditors and afraid his writing career might be coming to an end. In despair, Melville takes his family for a vacation to his cousin's farm in the Berkshires, where he meets Nathaniel Hawthorne at a picnic - and his life turns upside down. With a chronicle of the fervent love affair that grows out of that serendipitous afternoon, the two develop a deep connection marked by tensions and estrangements - feelings both shared and suppressed.
