Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jun 21st at 3:30 pm for Away We Go at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing a “Come On Feel the Illinoise” t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Exploring the comedic twists and emotional turns in one couples journey across contemporary America, Away We Go is the new movie from Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes (American Beauty). Longtime (and now thirtysomething) 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 cavalierly delivered news from Burts parents Jerry and Gloria (Jeff Daniels and Catherine OHara) that the eccentric elder Farlanders are moving out of Coloradothereby eliminating the expectant couples main reason for living there. So, where, and among whom of those closest to them, might Burt and Verona best put down roots to raise their impending bundle of joy? The couple embarks on an ambitious itinerary to reconnect with old friends and family, and to evaluate cities. Co-starring Allison Janney, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Paul Schneider and Chris Messina. Featuring music by singer/songwriter Alexi Murdoch.
As this is opening weekend for the film, and it’s playing on 2 screens, we strongly recommend everyone pre-order their tickets via the web at http://www.landmarktheatres.com/tickets/default.asp
