Hope Springs
What it's about:

Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couples' specialist in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough – the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their bedroom hang-ups and try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.

What the critics thought:

"Jones and Streep give likable enough performances as a humane monster and a human victim. But their characters never become more than that."
- Simon Abrams, Village Voice


"It will make you want to go home and have sex with your spouse afterward. Or at least share a longer hug or a more passionate kiss."
- Christy Lemire, Associated Press
  

"What could have been strained farce or, worse, geezer porn, morphs instead into a film of hilarious and heartfelt pleasures. It helps that director David Frankel has two of the best actors on the planet to raise the game."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Sometimes, to keep the magic, you need to learn a few tricks.

Although beautifully shot and a superb performance from Timothy Spall, it’s not the most exciting two-and-a-half hours of your life. Read More »
