Away We Go

A slow moving but interesting tale of a couple who are pregnant and find out his parents are moving abroad. This leaves them with the notion that they can also move anywhere but look to where they have friends and relatives in state. The entire movie is them travelling around the states visiting with various friends and taking in the scenery. They encounter raucous people; one played so well by Allison Janney that you feel the embarrassment through the screen; sad couples due to infertility and a relative who is against pushchairs and insists on ‘a communal bed’ for everyone. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays this cousin so well. Will they find the perfect home? Great dialogue and interaction between the two leading roles played so well by Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski.
