You should go

I loved this movie!

A friend and I went to see the new movie, "Away We Go", this past weekend and it turned out to be one of the best films we've seen in a long time.

It's a sweet, touching, slice-of-life story about a young couple trying to figure out their place in the world and where they should settle and raise their baby.

John Krasinski (from "The Office") and Maya Rudolph (from SNL) are both great...especially Maya, who shows a range and depth of emotion that you'd never expect from a gal with her wacky sketch comedy background.

Allison Janney (she of "Juno", "West Wing" and the play "Nine to Five" fame) gives a hilarious performace as a friend of Maya's who drinks more than she should and is far more inappropriate than she should be around her poor kids. She has a couple lines that I'm still quoting and laughing about today.

So, if you need a break and want to put a smile on your face....get thee to this movie.

You'll be glad you did.
