Film: 2009: June: Away We Go

“AWAY WE GO”.

Focus Features presents “AWAY WE GO”
Opening in Tucson on Friday, June 26, 2009
Rated: R
Running Time: TBD

Longtime (and now thirty-something) couple Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) are going to have a baby. The pregnancy progresses smoothly, but six months in, the pair is put off and put out by the news from Burt's parents Jerry and Gloria (Jeff Daniels and Catherine O'Hara) that the eccentric elder Farlanders are moving out of Colorado - thereby eliminating the expectant couple's main reason for living there.

The couple embarks on an ambitious itinerary to visit friends and family, and to evaluate cities. The first stop on the grand tour is Phoenix, where the duo spends a day at the (dog) races; then it's Tucson, and a visit to the lovely Grace (Carmen Ejogo), Verona's sister. An intimate conversation with her sister, who is her lone living relative, gives Verona a refreshed perspective - which she will sorely need in Wisconsin, where Burt's childhood "cousin" Ellen, now known as LN (Maggie Gyllenhaal), and her partner Roderick (Josh Hamilton) have Burt and Verona over to their home. After LN and Roderick elaborate on their intractable ideas for raising children and running a household, Burt and Verona bolt for Montreal and a warmer welcome from their former college classmates Tom (Chris Messina) and Munch (Melanie Lynskey).

Even though the latter's house is full of children, comfort and joy, a night out for the four old friends provides a bracing reminder of how much it takes to sustain a relationship and a family. When an emergency phone call forces Burt and Verona into an unanticipated Miami detour to visit Burt's brother Courtney (Paul Schneider), they realize that they must define home on their own terms.
