The Way Way Back.



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

How do I begin with this one. To say I really enjoyed this movie would be a understatement. It has an amazing cast and the story hit so close to home for me. It reminds me so much of my own son and the challenges he is having to over come. As soon as I got home I gave him such a big hug.

I think this is a fabulous coming of age film that this generation can relate to. Definitely take your teens and pre teens to this one. It wont disappoint.
