Sam Mendes + John Krasinski

Jun 2, 2009

Sam Mendes, the Academy Award-winning director of American Beauty and Road to Perdition, was putting the finishing touches on the intensely dramatic Revolutionary Road when he started working on Away We Go, a whimsical and heartfelt movie about an expectant couple on a cross-country odyssey in search of a place to set down roots. The films are companion pieces: two very different movies about couples trying to find their place. Mendes and the film’s co-star, John Krasinski, best known for his role on The Office, discussed their collaboration at a special screening for the Museum of the Moving Image.
