About the Movie
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 couple’s specialist (Steve Carell) 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 try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Streep fans, I think you're going to enjoy this one. I know I did.
Rotten: The film, a rehab job on a beached marriage, displays the most tender respect, the most exquisite tact, and yet it would be completely unwatchable -- an outright embarrassment -- with any other actors than Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep.
Fresh: It's tough to come up with new superlatives for Meryl Streep, but the 63-year-old actress delivers her most frankly sexual performance yet in Hope Springs.
Fresh: Unlike the cloying contrivances of It's Complicated, Hope Springs is audacious in its commitment to subtle authenticity, never artificially upping the dramatic stakes but instead staying true to its small yet relatable story.
I like this move , it was very good I looked at it two x.
I love that Tommy Lee Jones has not had a bunch of 'work' done and looked the part so completely and so did Meryl Streep. No great hard bodies, nothing synthetic, just great comedy!
A reality check on relationships!!!
Wow wow wow. To see this movie is like looking into a 30 year old marriage and dealing with the issues that are created over the years. I see why some couples break up now and what it takes to have a LONG marriage. This is GOOD insight, not just a movie!!!
