2012 Guide Analysis: "While David Frankel's recent birdwatching comedy "The Big Year" was one of the biggest flops of 2011, there's certainly more hope for this film which is being called a "drama with surprising comedy".

Streep and Jones play a couple who feel their three decade long marriage is getting stale. After reading a self-help book by a therapist (Carell), they head to his residence in a quaint seaside Maine town for a combination vacation and extended therapy session.

Should the film turn out well the trio will no doubt be up for some awards consideration. Certainly this teaming is an exciting one, but a lot will depend upon whether "Tell Me You Love Me" and "Everwood" writer Vanessa Taylor's script can live up to the quality of its cast."
