I recently saw Genius on HBO and liked it more than I thought I would, considering the bad reviews. I just wished Fitzgerald and Hemingway had bigger rolls.

Does anyone know of anyone know of any other movies about authors, editors, and publishers that are good.

There's a good historical novel, The Paris Wife, about Heminwgay's first wife, Hadley. It gives a very credible intimate view of Hemingway's family life and the workings of his inner circle, including bits about Fitzgerald and Zelda. It could have gone much deeper, but it is well written.
