News & Interviews for Hope Springs
Critic Reviews for Hope Springs
The word for both Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones is simply "courageous." The overarching theme of the movie is: Should people who are no longer young and slim and unwrinkled talk so much about -- much less engage in -- s-e-x?
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.
Audience Reviews for Hope Springs
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.
