Hope Springs (2012)
Friday 28th December 2012
Keep the chemistry alive with the perfect gift for Mother's Day as this heart-warming and romantic comedy shows that as relationships settle down, the romance needn't do the same as Hope Springs comes to Blu-ray, DVD and download on 25th February 2013, courtesy of Momentum Pictures.
Featuring an exceptional all-star cast including Oscar®-winning actors Meryl Streep (Mamma Mia, The Iron Lady, It's Complicated) and Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black, No Country for Old Men, The Fugitive), alongside funny man Steve Carell (The 40-year old Virgin, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Office: An American Workplace) and Jean Smart (Garden State, Sweet Home Alabama, Youth in Revolt) Hope Springs captures Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones at their very best.
From the director of The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me, David Frankel and the producers of Forrest Gump and Juno, Todd Black and Guymon Casady, comes a hilarious and touching comedy on the nature of mature relationships and the desire to keep the romance blossoming.
Kay (Streep) and Arnold (Jones) are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couple's specialist, Dr Bernard Feld (Steve Carell), in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her sceptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough - the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their relationship hang-ups and try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.
While Arnold wants to bury his head in the sand and is hesitant to admit they have an intimacy issue, Kay opens up about the holes that have developed over the year in the hope that they can rekindle the passion and love they shared when they got married 31 years ago.
Hope Springs features a whole host of exclusive extras including: Commentary by Director David Frankel; An Exclusive Look Inside the Perfect Movie Marriage of Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones; and The Doctor Is In: Steve Carell on Dr. Feld.
