Away We Go directed by Sam Mendes
|Maya Rudolf and John Krasinski in Away We Go|
I didn't know what to expect when this film began (especially as the first scene is quite....shall we say, confronting!), but first scene aside what I found was a delightfully quirky indie film about a 30-something couple who, suprised by news that they are expecting, hit the road to try to find a suitable place to bring up their family-to-be. The character-driven movie celebrates both the ordinary and the ridiculous, as the couple drop in on friends and relatives around America in their search for a place to nest.
While preparing this blog, I came upon a few scathing reviews of this movie, but I've got to say,
I liked it - alot!
