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.
