Away We Go

#1 Post by large marge » Mon Jun 22, 2009 8:21 pm

CAST: John Krasinski, Maya Rudolph, Jeff Daniels, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Allison Janney

"Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (“American Beauty”) from an original screenplay by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, this funny and heartfelt film follows the journey of an expectant couple (John Krasinski [“The Office’] and Maya Rudolph [“Saturday Night Live’]), as they travel the U.S. in search of the perfect place to put down roots and raise their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover “home” on their own terms for the first time. The movie features the music of Alexi Murdoch."


Saw this at a private screening on Wed, at the EIFF. Introduced in person by director Sam Mendes, the film was an enjoyable, gentle comedy. The 2 main characters were (to me) relative unknowns but played very likeable characters who the audience could feel a bond with. Most of the comedy came from the assorted eccentric and downright bizarre friends & relatives they met up with on their travels, some better-known faces among them. An easy-to-watch, pleasant evening's viewing. 8/10

Sadly, although OH & myself were at the show, on the red carpet and at the after show party, we were clearly neither famous nor photogenic enough for our pictures (they were taken) to end up on the festival website! :confused:

Looks like a good film too, but why does it have to clash with Julie and Julia! Grrr... They used to do more screenings on Mons/Weds and now it's more just Tues and Suns..shame... :wall:
So I won't grab tickets for this and stick with Julie and Julia, but if any other dates come up, please save me some tickets if possible for central london.
Cheers! x

Elski found this:
http://www.bafta.org/calendar-event.htm ... 9020000000
but she's not sure (neither am I) whether tickets are available to the public or just bafta members...
It says
"Book your free ticket to this screening and Q & A by emailing daniella@ofvm.org"

What say you, phunky and Beate and others? Where should it be posted?

Gutted to have missed tickets with the code phunkygal posted yesterday evening. Did anyone else get some, as no-one has mentioned it here?

(Edit: I now see from the Organiser that only two people did (Beate and Marialionza). So maybe either others were also too late or going to the other preview.)
