Fresh: Despite his reputation as a visually stylish director, Sam Mendes has taken a very low-key approach to Away We Go and by doing so has made his best film since American Beauty.-Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy, December 13, 2009
If you exclude the rather crude opening scene, this is a great film. The story takes two parents-to-be on a journey to find the perfect place to raise their child. Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) leave behind their home and find a place close to friends and family. All they want it a place for their child to feel safe and loved. Along the way they learn weather having friends and family close is really what they need. I knew absolutely nothing about the film before watching it, had I know what it was about I might not have watched it but I am very glad that I did. The overall story is great. Well written and it has a sense is realism which is wonderful. Original and funny at time. I loved the entire cast. Each character and actor makes the story come to life. I would choose anyone else for these rolls. The film moves at a steady pace and keeps your attention. It is simply a great film. 4 stars and I would recommend it.
