away we go

Moira+I went to the Watershed again yesterday afternoon – this time to see Sam Mendes’s excellent film “Away We Go”. It’s about a couple in their early 30s facing impending parenthood. Her parents are long dead and they moved to Colorado to be near his parents – who, with no apparent regard to grandparental responsibilities(!) – announce that they’re off to spend two years in Antwerp. This results in the young couple embarking on a journey across North America (visiting friends, relatives etc) to find the perfect place to raise their yet-to-be-born daughter. It’s very funny at times and oddly touching.
We both thoroughly enjoyed it.
