This is a dramedy directed by Sam Mendes. The person responsible for directing the hit movies American Beauty and Road to Perdition. Away We Go is the journey of a married couple, waiting for their first child to be born. Their original plan of living close to his parents is spoiled when they surprise Burt (Jon Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) of moving out of the country. This is when Burt and Verona decide to go on the road in search of the best place to raise their child. Along the way, they observe differing parenting styles of family and friends, and come to an understanding of what kind of parents they want to be. They also finally discover where they want to set down their roots. This film has a good supporting cast and the most recognizable names of Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jim Gaffigan, Allison Janey, and Josh Hamilton. While this didn’t have the widespread reach like American Beauty, it is well worth the watch if you desire a lighthearted movie with the right amount of serious moments.
