Well, the community ( and the restaurant where I had planned to enjoy a long, peaceful lunch) had been renamed for the day to film some scenes for an upcoming movie titled Great Hope Springs (hence, all those "GHS" signs). Starring Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep, the comedic flick tells the story of a long-time marriage gone stale (possibly):
Many years of marriage have left Maeve wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a famed relationship guru in the town of Great Hope Springs, she must persuade her skeptical husband to get on a plane for an intense week of marriage and sex therapy. Getting there was hard enough...now shedding their bedroom hang ups, learning some new moves and rediscovering their youthful spark is when the real adventure begins.So, hopefully, my general geographic locale benefited, economically and otherwise, from the film crew activity today. I am told the movie will hit theaters around December 14, 2012. I, for one, will be attending just so I can see how they did making a small seaside town in Connecticut look like a small town in Maine. From the looks of what went on today, I am guessing they did a great job.
If you want to see another movie that was filmed around here, check out Mystic Pizza (1988).
