Overview

Away We Go

When slacker thirtysomething couple Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) discover that his parents are moving overseas, the duo -- who expect their first child in a few months -- set off on a cross-country tour to figure out where they should lay down some roots in Sam Mendes' poignant comedy Away We Go. They visit a number of different cities, and meet with a different friend or family member's family at each stop. Their hosts include a set of emotionally detached parents (Allison Janney and Jim Gaffigan), a pair of overprotective new-age parents (Maggie Gyllenhaal and Josh Hamilton), and old college pals (Chris Messina and Melanie Lynskey), who have adopted a number of kids. Novelist Dave Eggers wrote the script with Vendela Vida.

This is such a quiet movie that had a huge impact on me! I picked it up on a whim and I had no idea that was going to be such a beautiful, truthful movie. I would recommend this movie to EVERYONE!!!

I saw this movie in theathers and I knew it wasn't going to be a-fall-out-of-my-chair-funny. It had it's great moments, but it made you think more and in some ways it is a dark comedy. I think it's perfect for this generation of 20-30 somethings. Rent it. You'll love it and think about buying it a week later.
