Intro to Cinema: Go 'Away'

-A week or so ago, the good folks at I Watch Stuff posted the trailer for Away We Go, a new movie starring The Office's John Krasinski alongside Maya Rudolph, Jim Gaffigan, and Allison Janney. The script was penned by one of CA's favorite writers, Dave Eggers, and his wife Vendela Vida.
-While we were initially thrilled by the idea of these people working together, the trailer is a downright nauseating mix of obnoxious Juno-style quirkiness and director Sam Mendes' trademark suburban angst, which has become increasingly played out in recent years. Let's hope this movie comes and goes without severely damaging the careers of those involved.
