The memoir is mainly his notebooks that he wrote while in Paris, France. It was published three years after he died.
Here is a statement from Mariel Hemingway from Deadline:
"A Moveable Feast has been my favorite book since I was 11 years old when my father took me to Paris," Mariel Hemingway said Tuesday in a statement. "While reading the book together, he showed me where Papa lived (and daddy was raised), ate, wrote and dreamed of becoming a great writer. His deep love of my grandmother Hadley and his growing passion for art is an inspiring time at the beginning of his iconic career. I want to reveal on film the coming-of-age story that has captivated readers and burgeoning writers for several decades."
Finally, here is Goodread's synopsis of A Moveable Feast:
Hemingway's memories of his life as an unknown writer living in Paris in the twenties are deeply personal, warmly affectionate, and full of wit. Looking back not only at his own much younger self, but also at the other writers who shared Paris with him - James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald - he recalls the time when, poor, happy, and writing in cafes, he discovered his vocation. Written during the last years of Hemingway's life, his memoir is a lively and powerful reflection of his genius that scintillates with the romance of the city.
