‘Hope Springs’ Review

'Hope Springs' review
Columbia

Meryl Streep has done a lot acting-with-a-capital-a lately; big, showy performances with accents and makeup and wigs and uncanny impressions of famous people. 'Hope Springs' proves she can still act-with-a-lower-case-a -- playing a nobody suburban housewife trying to breathe life back into her long-standing but lifeless marriage -- and produce equally big results. She's fantastic, and she seems to bring out the best in everyone around her, like a pitcher working on a no-hitter whose teammates are inspired to rise to the occasion and make outstanding defensive plays.

Steve Carell on His End of the World Plans: “Eating an Enormous Pizza”

SteveCarellSeeking

Steve Carell is the quintessential sad-clown comic. Oh, he’s fully capable of going for broke in off-the-wall comedies like 'Anchorman' or 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin.' Yet even when Carell plays serious – as he has done in such well-received feature films as 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' or 'Little Miss Sunshine' – audiences find themselves laughing along through their tears.

You might have the same reaction from ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,’ a deeper-than-expected Armageddon comedy that finds two lost souls searching for redemption before an asteroid takes out our planet. We recently posted our one-on-one conversation with Carell’s ‘End of the World’ co-star, Keira Knightley. Now it’s ‘The Office’ star’s turn to open up about his Armageddon menu and the one item he'd preserve in a time capsule if our planet was on the brink.

Keira Knightley Interview: What Would She Do Before ‘The End Of The World?’

KeiraSeeking

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ is like Michael Bay’s ‘Armageddon,’ only played for laughs. It takes place in a not-so-distant future, where an asteroid is destined to obliterate our planet in 21 days. Once that premise is established, the film follows two lonely souls during their final days as they try to resolve what they believe to be their most-important emotional issues.

We were lucky enough to sit down with Keira Knightley to discuss ‘The End of the World’ as she knows it and how it would affect their thinking. She opens up about her value systems, her sense of mortality, and how she thinks she might have failed her friends and family. (Sad face?) Here’s Keira Knightley:

‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ Review

Seeking a Friend For the End of the World
Focus Features

This is a bold idea: an apocalypse movie on a tiny scale, set not amongst the ragtag group of astronauts trying to save the world from an impending asteroid collision but rather in a New York City apartment building where two lonely people try to make sense of what little existence they have left.

As 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World' begins, a last ditch effort to blow up an oncoming meteor fails, and the end is officially nigh: in 21 days, the Earth will be destroyed. That's when we meet Dodge (Steve Carell), whose wife takes the news of their certain doom as her cue to bolt from their loveless marriage, and Dodge's neighbor Penny (Keira Knightley), who sleeps a lot, loves vinyl records, and misses her family back in England. But while 'Seeking's' idea may be bold, its execution is weak. There's more humor and poignancy in the occasional news reports from a comfortingly calm television newsman than any of the scenes involving our two leads.

There's no subject more ripe for cinema than the sex lives of old people. Who doesn't want to talk about older couples bumping uglies? That's why 'Hope Springs' pairs Oscar winners Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep together for a big summer release. The film is about an older couple who've unintentionally lapsed into celibacy and are looking to reheat their sex life. It comes out August 10, and now we have a trailer.
