Movie: Away We Go

I think we must have seen the preview for this one a dozen times, which is a lot of hype for a film aimed at the art house crowd. In the end, we both liked like, though as you can see at the rotten tomatoes site, this view is not universal. Roger Ebert's review sums up the controversy and take a stand on the positive side.

The parody of Ann Arbor (thinly disguised as Madison) is hilarious. The music is gorgeous and the lesson, that you are less crazy than you think because everyone else is covering up just like you do, is a useful one. And it has Maggie Guyllenhall!
