    I went to see “Hope Springs” with my friend. She said, “I have a feeling I’m going to be crying at the end of this movie”. She got all teary and smudged her make-up! :)

    Very funny, and touching movie! everyone should see it. I’ll probably pay to see it again.

    Brave performance of meryl stree, she did it again. No doubt she will win the golden globe, and hope she will be nominated for the oscar.

    Just saw HOPE SPRINGS today, and of course Meryl was fantastic in it, but I really felt Tommy Lee Jones shined a little brighter here. His character was so grumpy, yet we root for him. And watching his vulnerability progress was one of the best parts of the film. Together Streep and Jones are like magic… I call this movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” for my parents! But, I too enjoyed! Bravo.

    It wasn’t one of my favourites, but definitely a great movie. I just don’t think I’m the audience for it. I went and saw it with my dad, so it was a little bit awkward. Tommy Lee Jones did an excellent job, and Meryl was fabulous as usual, but i didn’t like her character that much, since she was trying to be someone she wasn’t.

    I didn’t like It’s Complicated when it first came out, but it certainly grew on me, so maybe this one will!

    Just saw “Hope Springs” on Opening Night!!
    Oh My Goodness ~ Meryl did it again!!
    The movie, as a whole, is so much deeper, richer, touching and just better than the ads make it appear to be.
    Visually it’s beautiful and the entire cast, especially Meryl and her leading man, Tommy Lee Jones, are all pitch perfect.
    It’s easily already jumped into one of the 5 best movies that I’ve seen so far this year; and I go to first run films twice a week, every week!!
    To sum it up; a brilliant piece of cinema with again one of Meryl’s best performances ever and she couldn’t be lovlier!
    Everyone should support her and go to the theater and see it; you won’t be disappointed.
    Enjoy!!

    I absolutely loved it! Went to the midnight screening in NYC. It was such a well-written film; absolutely genuine, true and real. And only these two superb actors could have made this film so incredibly emotional and yet hysterical at the same time. Tommy Lee and Meryl were absolutely brilliant.

  • Michele

    The movie was wonderful. I laughed, I cried, I was touched.

  • Jess W

    wow! this film was truly great. I am a huge fan of Meryl Streep and I have never seen her play someone like Kay. This movie exceeded by expectations by far. It looked like it was going to be a comedy but it was so much more than that. Her emotions really came out and she played this character perfectly. I really believe that this will have a big effect on people who are going through a situation like the one presented in the film.

    I went to the midnight showing in Dallas and it was well worth the lack of sleep. Meryl is such an awesome actress, as we all know, but she is so daring in the subject she took on in this film. Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep had excellent chemistry. And Steve Carell was perfect in his role as a therapist. I can’t wait to go again and actually thought I might go again today but am way too tired. Hahaha. The movie truly does transcend age. What a wonderful movie! Meryl…….you’re awesome!

  • Sophie

    Hope Springs was so good! I saw it today with a friend and oh my goodness. I expected so much from this film and then I saw it and it blew my mind, it was so much better than i expected. Meryl and Tommy had so much on screen dynamic, and I think that, mixed with the brilliant writing, made the film one of my favorites.

  • Harry

    I literally just came back from the movie. Boy, where should I start? Oh right. The performances!!!! Both Meryl and Tommy are marvelous. What a phenomenon. Both are superb and breath-taking. I am hoping that both will be nominated for Oscar since they deserve it! They shine throughout the film.
    The film itself is sweet and charming. But it makes me feel quite uncomfortable. It definitely challenges everybody’s everyday problem: getting our feelings across and gaining intimacy with the loved ones meaning lovers, parents, relatives, etc. It hits me quite hard. It speaks the truth. I think everyone can relate to it one way or the other even though it is focused on old married couple.
    Well, Streepers, you know what to do. Go and enjoy another phenomenal performance of Meryl Streep!
