Story


"The Way, Way Back" is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan's (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin).

Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world - all during a summer he will never forget.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."The Way, Way Back" pleasantly watchable, it also makes it feel small and anecdotal, a modest variation on something you've seen before..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..there are no grand resolutions or sweeping changes by the film's conclusion - which is what makes it seem all the more honest and realistic..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..there's something slightly formulaic and familiar about Nat Faxon and Jim Rash's coming-of-age film The Way, Way Back, but not enough to dampen its crowd-pleasing charm..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
