Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first original screenplay by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, Away We Go is the new movie direcetd by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes.

Longtime couple Verona (Maya Rudolph) and Burt (John Krasinski) are expecting a baby, and the impending child's only living grandparents are moving to — where else — Belgium. So Burt and Verona head out on the road, across America, looking for the right place to call home. Along the way they encounter a succession of strange and hilarious friends and relatives (played by a cast that includes Jeff Daniels, Catherine O'Hara, Maggie Gyllenhall, Josh Hamilton, Allison Janney, and Jim Gaffigan), most of whom have no idea what they're doing.

In the end — with and despite the help of those they meet on their journey — Burt and Verona come closer to an understanding of their own definition of home and family.

Review:

"Burt and Verona are two characters rarely seen in the movies: thirtysomething, educated, healthy, self-employed, gentle, thoughtful, whimsical, not neurotic and really truly in love." Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Like Juno or Little Miss Sunshine, Away We Go is a small film, the kind of gem that's easy to crush with hype or overpraise. But, the fact is that few movies deal with feelings this profound with as much restraint as Mendes and his crew display here." TV Guide

Review:

"Though Away We Go lacks the screwball unpredictability of something like Flirting With Disaster, it compensates with a unexpected depth of feeling, a novelist's (or memoirist's) sense of detail, and a panoramic view of what home means." The Onion (AV Club)
