HOPE SPRINGS - Blu-ray review

moviemet.com
8 December 2012
  • Summary: While the comedic moments are a weight on the finished product, and while “Hope Springs” strives for an emotional depth it can’t always maintain, it gets points for treating older characters and their sexual and emotional needs with some measure of respect.

  • Excerpt: Help me out here. I know the traditional gift for a couple’s 25th wedding anniversary is silver and that gold is supposed to mark 50 years. But what do you get a spouse to commemorate your considerably less ceremonial 31-year wedding anniversary?

High-Def Digest

  • Excerpt: Admit it-- you never, ever thought you'd see Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep in a bedroom scene together. That's not just because of Hollywood's well-documented aversion to love scenes between anyone under the age of 30, though that's part of it too.

8 August 2012
  • Excerpt: There are times—many times, in fact—when Hope Springs bears an uncanny resemblance to a movie made about adults, for adults. Not fake adults like the middle-aged ninnies in Nancy Meyers’ Something’s Gotta Give and It’s Complicated , which have become the sad standard for over-40 Hollywood...
