Hope Springs and it Does

Hope Springs Review

I have not seen the movie Hope Springs, but I fully intend to go and see it.  I love the fact that it about people who are of a certain age and at a certain stage of life. One of my favorite programs CBS Sunday Morning, and one of my favorite people David Edelstein did a wonderful review which made me want to see if even more.  I do take what David Edelstein says to heart.  He has given me some very good reviews on musical artist that I truly love–Leela James, Eva Cassidy, Melody Gardot just to name a few.

Take a look. The movie stars Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep.

Hope Springs Review

If you are a woman of a certain age, want to understand a  woman on a certain age or know a woman of a certain age, take a look at the review given by David Edelstein.  The part about the anniversary gift made me smile.  My hubby and I just got back from Scottsdale, Arizona where I celebrated our anniversary, and he went on vacation–he forgot–again.  I wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride, and you guessed it–he told me he would be on the ground when I got back–can we say chicken?

I have forgiven him for forgetting, for staying on the ground and I’ve gone on my balloon ride because “thisisyour(my)bestyear”.   

If you see the movie, let us know what you think.

    Just reading this today, but I am glad I went to see Hope Springs. It tackled a sensitive issue with grace and left me with a sense of hope! Did you see it? What was your response?

      Hey, I thought it was very good and a lot like life. It did give me hope. I just wish she was willing to live “her”life–do something that she wanted to do.
