What movies do you want to live in?  Here are Dave Eggers' answers. The author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, What is the What and the screenplay (with wife Vendela Vida) of Away We Go (currently in theaters), a low-key comedy film about a couple deciding where to live, inspired thoughts of other move-in ready films.

What does it say that the movies I'd like to live in are (in no particular order) Terrence Malick's The New World (with its glistening images of English adventurer John Smith landing in pristine Pocahontas country), James Ivory's Howards End  (an English country home surrounded by fields of bluebells) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (with its cityscapes of Spain's loveliest place)?

Which movie real (or surreal) estate inspires you?
