The award-winning director of The Devil Wears Prada brings us a new film about the joys and pains of maintaining a healthy marriage. In Hope Springs, many years of marriage have left Maeve (Meryl Streep) wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband.  When she hears of a famed relationship guru (Steve Carell) in the town of Great Hope Springs, she must persuade her skeptical husband (Tommy Lee Jones) to get on a plane for an intense week of marriage and sex therapy. Getting there was hard enough….now the real adventure begins.

View the trailer, and  photos from the movie and more at the Hope Springs website.  This movie is rated PG-13 for mature thematic content involving sexuality.
