Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones star in Thursday’s movie at 6 p.m. only

Posted on: April 6, 2013

Please note:  our summer movie hours will only be at 6 p.m.

The Murphy Library’s Thursday movie, Hope Springs, stars Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell in a comedy drama about a marriage that needs more romance. Running time is 100 minutes and rating is PG-13.  The film will be shown at 6 p.m. only.

Kay and Arnold have been married over 30 years and find themselves in a rut.  Kay is not too happy about that.  Arnold doesn’t think anything’s wrong.  When Kay signs them up for a week’s counseling session with Dr. Feld, (played by Steve Carell), Arnold is not happy.  At all.  But he goes.

The late, great film critic Roger Ebert gives good advice when watching this film.  Keep your eyes on Tommy Lee Jones.  This is not his typical role, playing a shy and vulnerable man.  There is nothing like the opportunity to watch an actor stretch.  Thank you, Tommy.  Thank you, Roger.
