Kay and Arnold are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couple's specialist in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough -- the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their bedroom hang-ups and try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.

BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep first met back in the 1970s when they were both acting in different plays for the New York Public Theater. They were previously both in Robert Altman's film "A Prairie Home Companion," but this is the first time in their four-decade friendship that they've ever shared a scene.
