  • Hope Springs

    Hope Springs is a delightful film which draws the curtain on a seldom discussed issue: What becomes of a marriage once the glitz and vitality are long gone and the couple are in their later years? As usual, Meryl Streep is terrific and works wonderfully with Tommy Lee Jones to portray a long established couple who have lost the spark in their marriage. Compelling viewing.

  • Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

    “Armageddon outta here” is a joke that no one says in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. But someone should have, because that line is much funnier than anything else uttered in this supposed Rom-Com, which is really a rather telling sign. Lorene Scafaria’s directorial debut feels rather forced and is incredibly irritating which is a shame as the premise is so promising. The good things? Keira Knightley’s life is threatened by a big rock. The down side? She is taking us all with her. Bitch.
