In Movies You Should See: Away We Go

Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski in Away We Go
Directed by: Sam Mendes / Written by: Dave Eggers & Vendela Vida

Talking about what this movie isn't seems somehow more appropriate: It is not a Man-Child Makes Good film, although it is a little bit about growing up. It is not a pregnancy/baby film, although it is a little bit about expecting a baby. It is not a romantic comedy, although it is both romantic and funny, a lot of each. And it is not perfect, although it is very, very good.

John Krasinski is great. Maya Rudolph is extraordinary.

Open thread for those who have seen the film. Here be a SPOILER WARNING for the comments...
