Director David Frankel was interviewed by ComingSoon.net on his latest film “The Big Year” and was also asked about “Great Hope Springs”. An excerpt can be found below, the complete interview is here.

It’s a drama with surprising comedy, that’s the best way to describe it now. I mean, until I see it in the cutting room, but I think our take on it is that it’s really, really funny, but we’re not playing anything for laughs, and I think that’s the best kind of comedy, I think, where the humor comes out of very real emotion, not unlike “The Big Year.” I think that’s a similar tone that we’re going for in “Great Hope Springs.”
