Hope Springs screenwriter Vanessa Taylor talks sex and Meryl Streep

ScreenwritingU sat down with screenwriter Vanessa Taylor to get her take on the clichés of romantic comedies, working with Meryl Streep and being on the famed Hollywood Black List.

Hope Springs is the story of a married couple looking to put the spark back in their love life. These two are sleeping in separate bedrooms, barely talking and sex is pretty much out of the question.

When Kay, played by Meryl Streep, decides she’d like to see a marriage councilor for a week of intense sessions, her husband, played by Tommy Lee Jones, decides he’ll go but that the whole thing is a big giant scam. You can only imagine what happens next.

“I was very drawn to telling a love story in the context of a marriage,” says screenwriter Vanessa Taylor, who is also a writer on the TV show Game of Thrones. “So many romantic movies are about meeting someone rather than sustaining a relationship.”
