The films I love are beautiful, lovely creatures that make me feel things- esp those lost little details of things I thought I had forgotten or worse yet, that no one else understands; "Away We Go" (2009 -director Sam Mendes; Staring Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski) ... ...is small and still. Its a road trip picture whose movement is a crescendo to allow the characters to find something and not a character of its own. The dialogue reminds me of things unsaid or perhaps of conversations I experienced when not paying close enough attention. Guest appearances will make you laugh and maybe cry, seem to have no point and then offer tiny gems. As with many wonderful films its important to acknowledge the things seen and yet not noticed - costumers, set designers and sound people who bring a tone, shadow and comfort to each character that builds upon the dialogue - you know its done well when its seamless. Special notice should be paid to Melanie Lynskey, who plays the depth of loss and heartache through silent moves in a a dance that wrecks you. A great film that won't become your favorite, but you'll always remember.
