Away We Go

A romantic comedy-drama from director Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road, Jarhead, American Beauty), from a script by husband-and-wife team Dave Eggars and Vendela Vida, and starring John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph.

Burt (Krasinski) and Verona (Rudolph) are in their thirties, have been together a long time and are deeply in love. Verona is also heavily pregnant.

Their lives aren't exactly mapped out, but they have the sort of jobs that mean they can work from their scruffy-but-comfortable Colorado home, and Burt's parents, Gloria and Jerry (Catherine O'Hara and Jeff Daniels), live just down the road, so they've got the childcare covered and things are looking good.

But when Gloria and Jerry announce they're off on an extended trip to Belgium when the baby is due to arrive, suddenly all bets are off.

Realising they can't rely on Burt's parents and that they can work from anywhere in the country, Burt and Verona take to the road, visiting friends and family in a quest to find the perfect place for them to raise their child... and encountering some 'interesting' parenting methods along the way.

Also starring Allison Janney and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
