(US / 2009 / dir by Sam Mendes)
Following on the heels of REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, Sam Mendes directs this lighthearted yet thoughtful road movie about a young couple trying to decide where to raise their family.
Burt (John Krasinski, THE OFFICE) and Verona (Maya Rudolph, SNL) are expecting their first child in rural Colorado, a locale they’ve chosen for its proximity to Burt’s parents. But Jerry and Gloria (Jeff Daniels and Catherine O’Hara) plan to move to Belgium. In an attempt to find the perfect setting to raise their bundle of joy, the parents-to-be visit friends and family across the continent, including a crassly funny mom in Phoenix (Allison Janney) and a hippie with a principled aversion to strollers in Madison (Maggie Gyllenhaal). But the more they see and hear, the more they become fearful of what it will be like to be parents. With a script co-written by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, AWAY WE GO is a clever delight.
R / 97 mins.
