Away We Go trailer

When I heard that Dave Eggers had written his first original screenplay and that Sam Mendes was going to direct, I was immediately interested. The trailer for that comedy/drama, AWAY WE GO, is online today and it looks like every bit the smart, funny, sad movie you'd expect from Dave Eggers and Sam Mendes.

The movie stars John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph as an expectant couple who travel across the US looking for the perfect place to raise a family. It's amazing that we seem to have found a film that focuses on a couple in their 30s who aren't stoners, victims of a serial killer, yuppies or office drones. They're actual real people (gasp!). Even Krasinski toned down his boyish good looks with a scraggly beard and horn-rimmed glasses. Check out the trailer below and I think you'll find a movie that'll be a nice alternative to the action fare this summer.

Extra Tidbit: I really dig the animated title cards too.

Dave Eggers is one of my favorite authors working today.

The trailer is just alright, but I suspect that a film like this doesn't really lend itself to snippets.

I think some of Mendes' films are overrated, but I agree that he's a terrific director. One of the best of his generation.

(I know that probably sounds contradictory)

I don't care, I love movies about "real people." They show me that whoever made these movies actually know that people are not just where they work, or what they do in their spare time.

I'm surprised Sam Mendes is the director here. Looks like it could be the most intimate, little film of his since "American Beauty."

Well, I don't care for "real" people. They're not what movies are for, you know. Because.. prepare: It's a movie and not supposed to be real.
Having said that, looks cool.

I love Eggars' books, and the work he does with young writers (people should read the compilation he heads every year "The Best American Non-Required Reading"). Mendes is a great director, though the subject matter of his movies are hit or miss with me, I've never faulted him for it. This film has jumped to the top of my list as well.

Amazing Cast

This movie just jumped to the top of my most anticipated movies. Maya Rudolph is going to show her range with this one, and I hope it is a success because she is just great to watch perform. Anyone see her in Idiocracy? Hopefully this one isn't overlooked like that was.
