We were invited to watch Hope Springs at Ster-Kinekor, I couldn’t help but wonder what the movie was about, ‘Hope Springs’ – such a catchy title but I decided I won’t search for it on google, I wanted to be surprised.
The movie is about Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) whose marriage is boring, their kids have grown and moved out. They have nothing to talk about and they even sleep in separate rooms. Kay has had enough and finds a book by Dr. Feld which inspires her to sign them up for the Doctor’s intense week long marriage counseling session. Although Arnold sees nothing wrong with their 31 year long marriage, he reluctantly agrees to go on the excursion.
What follows is an insightful experience as Dr. Feld manages to help the couple understand how they have emotionally drifted apart and what they can do to reignite their passion. Even with the Doctor’s advice, Kay and Arnold find that renewing their marriage’s fire is a daunting challenge for them both.
I took a study break to go and watch the movie; I really enjoyed it, perfect way to de-stress. The movie is worth your time and money, 5 out of 5 !! Go to Ster- Kinekor now and watch the movie, let me know if you enjoyed it as much as I did.
