Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Sam Mendes' Away We Go is two thirds of a good film. Many good laughs. A decent concept. No follow through. – Giles Hardie,, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Mendes paints in broad strokes, but in this case he seems little more than an interpreter of his screenwriters' obsession with innocence. – Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia), Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An unconvincing premise is turned into a must-see heartwarming romantic comedy. – Colin Fraser, FILMINK (Australia), Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Away We Go is merely a bemused sigh of relief. It is not the most memorable film of recent times, but does little wrong as it goes about its business. – Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), Jun 24, 2010

One Beautiful Love Story...

This movie is one of my favorite films of all time. I love all Sam Mendes films but this one made me leave the theatre with a huge imoression on me. I loved how the love story was actually realistic and not glamorized or ridiculous like most movies these days. The witty and romantic script was so well done, and I was brought to tears at the end and I rarely cry in cinema. I reccomend this to any indie movie lover, or anyone looking for an amazing movie to watch!

simple, perfect

This movie is gentle, funny, kind, warm...all things that you might think would be synonymous with slow and boring. Not the case. Not at all. The story will grab you from the first scene. It's rare to see a movie about people who genuinely love each other, where the drama isn't coming from wanting to find something with somebody else, but rather about trying to create something new together, about being a cozy knitted team in a complicated world. This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long, long time. Watch it. You'll be better for it.

normal but not slow

Not sure what it is about this flick. No car chases, no gratuitous hotties, no flash. Completely normal.... but the pace is there... the story moves along without any drag. The main characters are adorable, maybe that's what's so great? If you're more of a James Bond, Ocean's Eleven, Terminator type... then maybe not for you.... although I love me some Bond and Ocean's Eleven.... Anyway, it's a beautiful and entertaining film and I don't know why.
