Hope Springs

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Their kids grown, Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold Soames (Tommy Lee Jones) have been married 31 years. In an attempt to break them out of their rut, Kay takes them to a couples therapy workshop in a Maine town called, you guessed it, Great Hope Springs. Steve Carell plays the therapist wonderfully straight. The impressive script by Vanessa Taylor gives these master actors plenty to work with, and what seems at first to be a syrupy old-folks-are-cute rom-com, is actually a good and enjoyable film.

As summer comes to a close, the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy continues to dominate best-seller lists. Erotica is red-hot right now, and readers can expect a steady stream of BDSM fiction in 2013 (it takes a while for the publishing machine to react to a trend). In the meantime, J.K. Rowling is publishing her first novel for adult readers, Justin Cronin (The Passage) and Ken Follett (Fall of Giants) deliver two of the biggest sequels of the year, and more than a dozen big-name music biographies will vie for your attention between now and December.
