i recently watched this movie, hope springs, (and forced my husband to watch it with me) and you know what? it was really good! of course, with pros like meryl streep, tommy lee jones and steve carell, what else would you expect, but i thought it was going to be just sappy and outdated. it wasn't either of those things. it was real and honest. it does get a little cringy during the scenes where they're talking about sex and actually having sex, but overall it's a very sweet and touching movie.
the best part: the very end when the credits are rolling. that sounds awful, but that's actually the best scene in the whole movie. i don't want to give away the ending so you'll just have to trust me.
the worst part: it was supposed to take place in maine but all the scenes were shot in connecticut. lame!
