USA/UK. Category IIB. Director Sam Mendes’s recent film “Revolutionary Road” was a fairly successful adaptation of the Richard Yates story about a couple struggling to come to terms with a breakdown in their marriage. “Away We Go” revisits this same theme of family dysfunction, but this time round with a light-hearted touch and a bit of fun.
