About Hope Springs
Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones, slowly morphing into the old man from Up) have been married for three decades. They celebrate their wedding anniversary peacefully with their children and seem content with their lives. But every morning Arnold retreats wordlessly behind his newspaper and the pair sleep in separate beds at night. Increasingly despairing of her devoted but distant husband Kay arranges for them to see a therapist (Steve Carell). He puts them on a week-long crash course of exercises designed to bring them closer together, but Arnold is set in his ways and Kay is embarrassed by the explicit advice given in self-help books. Can they learn how to spice up their sex lives and regain the emotional intimacy they once had?
