Away I'll Go

Jett Loe has this forthcoming Sam Mendes abortion dead to rights:

Watch the trailer [for Away We Go] below and tell me if it isn’t every ‘indie’ smash you’ve seen in the last few years whacked into a blender with a dash of higher production values.
I don't despise Sam Mendes as much as many people seem to -- my initial fond feelings for American Beauty have declined with time, but I continue to hold high regard for Revolutionary Road, Road to Perdition, and Jarhead (in that order of preference).

That said, this new film looks awful:

Maybe there's more there than is suggested in this trailer. I would hope so.
