HOPE SPRINGS .A VERY ENJOYABLE MOVIE.,
This review is from: Hope Springs (2012) [DVD] (DVD)
Been married a long time, relationship lost it's zest ? Well do something about it,how about a arriage refreshment course, at a nice location.That's what this highly enjoyable film is all about. The pairing of Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones is a treat to behold, and Steve Carrell as the marriage councellor may be one of his best roles yet.The script is real, some great funny lines, and the interplay between Streep and Jones works perfectly.She wants more from the marriasge,he's happy as things are as her settles into middle age, and thinks the cost for the course is too high anyway. This is an adults film in it's content,not in bad mlanguage or sex scenes,no not at all but it's theme. The two main stars are always good but I recommend this as a film that challenges us all to keep relationships special. A very good film, and one to enjoy again and again.
