This is a lovely story about Burt and Verona, a thirty something couple, who are about to have their first baby. Verona’s only living relative is her sister and Burt’s parents are moving out of the country. Burt and Verona go on a cross-country trip visiting various friends and family to figure out where they want to settle and raise their child.
This is one of the most refreshingly human stories I’ve seen on screen this year. It’s filled with the kind of questions, indecision, and unexpectedness that wash over many of us in real life. Burt and Verona are looking for a home and, at the same time, seeking to define what home means to them, all while the enormous responsibility of raising a child looms near. I appreciate that this movie addresses the realities of the human experience—loss, pain, responsibility—while keeping at its core a tender relationship and humble joy.
