All proceeds benefit 826 Seattle and its programs.
826 Seattle is the city's only writing center entirely dedicated to helping students, ages 6 to 18, improve their written communication skills. All 826 programs are structured around the belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to a young persons future success. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, 826 Seattle offers free after-school tutoring, special writing workshops, class field trips, in-school programs, and publishing opportunities for Seattle students to improve their ability to communicate effectively in writing.
Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) from an original screenplay by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, this funny and heartfelt film follows the journey of an expectant couple (John Krasinski [The Office] and Maya Rudolph [Saturday Night Live]), as they travel the U.S. in search of the perfect place to put down roots and raise their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover home on their own terms for the first time. The movie features the music of Alexi Murdoch.
