Running From Crazy
Mariel Hemingway is perhaps most famous for playing Tracy, the teenage girl romanced by Woody Allen in his classic ‘Manhattan’. But she’s also the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, and one of the last in a long line of troubled American artistic aristocrats. ‘Running From Crazy’ is Mariel’s portrait of her family, but it’s also an investigation into why the Hemingway family seems so riven with strife, uncovering a legacy of suicide, abuse, addiction and alcoholism. Director Barbara Kopple is a veteran whose first film, 1976’s ‘Harlan County USA’, is remembered as one of America’s most important documentary features.
