Streep fans, I think you're going to enjoy this one. I know I did.
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.
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.
All that's missing are commercials for estrogen cream and erectile-dysfunction meds.
As the couple try to rekindle the bedroom flame the note of cutesy comedy kicks in and the movie gets phonier and phonier.
Streep is warm, and she's got the timing of a stand-up. Her performance demands you bat for her woman.
There's an underlying air of reliability which allows the viewer to sit back, relax and enjoy its easy humour and the chemistry between Streep and Jones.
They say Meryl Streep can do anything as an actress. Hope Springs proves it.
I have to say most people, including myself, prefer to watch a romance take place with a younger couple, but with these two seasoned and compelling actors, the awkward sexual tension is charming and very funny.
One of those films that is only as good as its stars. Luckily, in this instance, the stars are Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
The script treats its characters with respect. The relentless music is another matter entirely.
The heart of the movie is about sacrificing pride and risking embarrassment in order serve a spouse in love.
Sweet and amusing romance drama.
"Hope Springs" could've been a pretty insightful film about the realities that set in after being married for a very very long time. Instead "Hope" opts to be a enjoyable piece of fluff anchored by two masterful performances by the always great Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
Nice. Enjoyable. Touching. Not to be viewed as a Romantic Comedy, though..it is a drama, with maybe 1 or 2 minor chuckles. I found it very true to life. Meryl Streep, and Tommy Lee Jones, did a completely believable job.
An honest and emotional film about the ups and downs of marriage bolstered by incredible performances from Streep and Jones. This is a serious movie with very little comedy, unlike the trailers suggest, but there's still enough funny moments to not make it a completely depressing experience for a majority of the movie. If there's any flaws, it is certainly the annoying music at some points that just shouts the emotions you should be feeling, as well as a little too tidy of an ending for what the characters go through throughout the film. It's still a very good film though and one of the few serious films about relationships. It's nice to have a romantic movie that doesn't pander to the audience.
