Away We Go review
I saw the preview of ‘Away We Go’ recently with a friend. ‘Away We Go’, directed by Sam Mendes, is a lovely, simple movie following new parents-to-be Burt (John Krasinski from The Office US) and Verona (the very pretty Maya Rudolph).
Burt and Verona live in a horrible, rundown little house near to Burts parents. The same day that they announce they are expecting a baby, Burts parents announce that they are moving away for two years and suddenly the parents to be are thrown into turmoil. With Veronas parents dead and Burts parents gone away, they have no family for the baby outside of themselves. While Verona is still pregnant they undertake a huge trip around the country visiting various friends and family members scattered as far apart as Miami and Montreal, trying to find somewhere to put down roots and bring up baby with some sort of support system nearby.
‘Away We Go’ is such a romantic, real, sweet, funny and sad film I don’t see how anyone could dislike it. The way Burt talks to Verona sometimes is hilarious and I know that the male friend with me apologised to his girlfriend afterwards when he recognised some things he has said himself on the screen 😀
Take a look at the trailer:
‘Away We Go’ opens today in cinemas nationwide.
Thank you to Kate Bowe PR for the preview tickets.
