Away We Go

I checked out Away We Go last night. Sam Mendes put together another solid movie with the help a great story written by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida.

Credit John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph for turning in top notch performances. Rudolph, one of my favorites from SNL, did an exceptional job with her character.

What really made the film was the warming and heartfelt soundtrack featuring George Harrison, The Velvet Underground, The Stranglers, and Bob Dylan. The soundtrack is centered around Scottish singer-song writer Alexi Murdoch. His sound has been compared to Nick Drake and you can hear it throughout the film.
