Trailer of the Day: Away We Go

I love indie films, or films that give off that indie-esque vibe. They seem more like labors of love than big time Hollywood studio movies, when you know the limited budget has the cast and crew scrambling to find resources and be a hell of a lot more creative than having millions thrown at you from some studio exec. Anyways. I can't really tell if Away We Go is an indie per se. I mean, it's directed by Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road, American Beauty) and stars some really interesting and famous actors. But the trailer makes the movie have a Juno-feel to it, and has made it one of my most anticipated movies of the year- a bearded John Krasinski (aka Jim Halpert on The Office), the always funny Maya Rudolph, plus a slew of stars. A couple looking to find a place to start a family, the relatable theme of feeling lost and displaced, subtle humor- it's all in here. And it looks AWESOME! And this isn't just because I want to eventually marry JKras and have lots of babies with him..What?
