Although classified for awards purposes as a comedy, this was, for me, a sad look at a sad situation. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones portray a couple who have been married for some 30 years, are really bored with each other. The spark has gone out of the marriage and they have resorted to sleeping in separate bedrooms. The wife decides to do something about the situation and books them into a session with a marriage counsellor. Hubby tags along very reluctantly. While the dialogue provides some very amusing moments, the actual content of the counselling sessions is of a very adult nature and not, to my mind, the stuff of which comedy is made - it cuts too close to the bone.
