I finally got around to seeing Away We Go.
God I loved this movie.
It’s one of the most real love stories I have ever seen on film. Yeah, the characters say silly things but the issues and the relationship between the two main characters rings so true.
And there’s a comfortable stillness between the two main characters. It feels like they have known each other forever and don’t need to fill the uncomfortable silences with any noises. More precisely, they’ve known each other for so long and know each other so well that there are no uncomfortable silences, just the ability to sit in each other’s space and just be.
