Two video posts in a row maaay seem a little lazy and lame but it’s so worth it because we all must go see this movie together (I’m talking to you, 300-odd regular readers) and smile the whole time and eat Red Vines and fall deeply, deeply in love with a — wait for it — BEARDED John Krasinski:
Now, our love for John Krasinski has been pretty well documented on this blog, here and here and here and here. But I’ve yet to see Johnny K branch out and do a movie that I actually wanted see. I’m always afraid they’ll be bad and ruin my perfect love for him. (No John, seriously, are you listening? I’m tall too. Pretty witty. Did I mention I think we’re soulmates?) This movie, however, actually looks good. A little indie, a little funny, a little tugging-at-the-heart-strings; it’s a holy trinity of movie goodness. Plus, the movie was directed by Sam Mendes, husband of SWTCTW girl crush Kate Winslet AND SWTCTW’s very own Kathleen looks eerily like Maya Rudolph. So there’s that.
FYI, the song in the preview is Alexi Murdoch’s “All My Days.”
Thanks to sometime guest blogger Madeline for the tip!

Oh man, watching that was like me in my dreams– minus the whole being fat thing. I’m with John Krasinski! And we’re in love!
Wowza. If JK weren’t enough (plus with a beard- Mal, it’s meant to be!), I really just super duper adore both the lady from Home Alone and the lady from 10 Things I Hate About You. What a great combo of people from my favorite movies and television shows. Ideal. Mal, I’ll be home in July and starved for American pop culture, so you can count on us seeing this movie. Even if you’ve already seen it.
