From acclaimed Director Sam Mendes (“Revolutionary Road”) comes this funny, romantic, honest and surprisingly moving film that explores the comedic twists and emotional turns in one expectant couple’s journey to find the right place to put down roots. John Krasinski (NBC’s “The Office”) and Maya Rudolph (NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”) transcend what you’ve seen before with break out performances that are warm, emotional and funny, as they go on their journey visiting friends and family brought to life by the enormously talented ensemble cast including Catherine O’Hara (“Best In Show”), Jeff Daniels (“State of Play”), Allison Janney (“Juno”), Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Batman: The Dark Knight”), and set to the original music of singer songwriter Alexi Murdoch (“Garden State”). Critics are raving about Away We Go: “4 stars! Honest, humorous and moving!” (Christy Lemire, Associated Press)
