Movie Review: Away We Go November 14, 2009

Netflix Synopsis: Buoyed by the news that they are expecting their first baby, Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) embark on a journey to locate the perfect place on the planet to raise their child. But their quest inevitably yields many unexpected surprises. Sam Mendes directs this quirky comedy while Allison Janney, Catherine O’Hara, Josh Hamilton, Jim Gaffigan, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jeff Daniels co-star.

Let me start by saying this movie was slow. But, and this is a HUGE but, it worked for me. For some reason, I really connected with this movie. It was touching, sentimental, beautiful, and real. I am so glad I was willing to sit through it and let the movie wash over me. It was slow, but it felt like real life. You have to let go and yet still be fully engaged. The movie, the travels of the characters really emulated the journey of our lives. In each place they travelled there was some problem and yet it could be their home. And they continued their journey until they found it.

The soundtrack was soft and gentle and moving. It fit the movie perfectly. And each place, seven cities, was such a great representation of the location and it really felt like you were there. And one of the cool things about this movie was that it was produced in a “green” way. They put a lot of effort into making sure the impact of filming was very small. That is cool. Kudos to all involved in this movie, for sure!
