Grown-up Romance: Hope Springs
Rebecca Cusey reviews the new Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones movie Hope Springs:
It’s become quite fashionable to cluck and sigh at romantic comedies that end with the girl getting her guy and, perhaps, a ring.
“That’s just the beginning,” we scold, “What happens after that? What about grown-up romances? The ones that happen after ten or twenty seven years of marriage? What about love that lasts?”
Hope Springs, opening Wednesday August 8, is just the kind of pro-marriage, grown-up romance we say we want.In fact, quite grown-up.
As in Baby Boomer.
