I like most of Sam Mendes’ movies, though I avoided Revolutionary Road because it looks like a more boring version of American Beauty.  With fedoras.  But as luck would have it, he already has another project out. I hadn’t heard a thing about it until the trailer hit today. Away We Go stars John Krasinski (Jim from The Office) and Maya Rudolph (formerly of SNL) with a script by Dave Eggers and his wife, fellow writer Vendela Vida.  It sucks that hipsters like Dave Eggers, because now I have to defend it any time I say something good about him.  Hey, trust fund hippies, you know what’d be great?  You could hate everything I like!  Wouldn’t that be, like, so ironic?
