It happens to so many couples. After many years together the passion in the relationship just seems to die. Married couples start to feel like roommates, and sex becomes a distant memory. Kay Soames (Meryl Streep) and her husband Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) are a devoted couple, still very deeply in love with each other. But after 31 years of marriage things just aren’t what they used to be. Although Arnold seems content with the status quo, Kay is not – she longs to spice things up, reconnect with her husband and find the passion they once shared.

After learning about Dr. Bernie Feld (Steve Carell), a relationship therapist in Great Hope Springs who has a reputation for yielding incredible results, Kay begs Arnold to fly with her to Great Hope Springs for an intensive one-week session. Convincing him to go was difficult enough. The really exhausting work, it turns out, comes with shedding their long-held bedroom hang-ups, overcoming years of sexual repression and remembering what caused them to fall in love in the first place.
