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. – Tom Charity,, Jan 8, 2013

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. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jan 8, 2013

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. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jan 8, 2013

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. – Richard Haridy, Quickflix, Nov 25, 2013

I Very Unfunny Comedy

What was funny about this, except for Tommy Lee Jones' reactions to a few of Steve Carrell 's therapy questions. The film was overall depressing and after a point I couldn't muster up a bit of concern for either Streep's of Lee-Jones' characters. This was just a rehash of a worn out plot with none of the predictable funny bits thrown in.

Blah! 2 good talents wasted.

Hope springs

Started with a few good laughs and then was the most depressing movie on a suburb mid life crisis couple. I had so much expectation for Mrs Streep. Oh dear!
