About The Way, Way Back

The Way, Way Back is a coming-of-age film that follows the journey of 14-year-old Duncan as he navigates the complexities of adolescence during a summer vacation with his mother and her overbearing boyfriend. Directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, the film boasts an impressive cast including Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, and Maya Rudolph.

The film received critical acclaim for its heartfelt portrayal of the struggles of growing up and the importance of finding one's own voice. Rolling Stone praised the film for its "hilarious and heartwarming" story, noting that it "captures the awkwardness and uncertainty of adolescence with remarkable authenticity."

At the heart of the film is the relationship between Duncan and Owen, the manager of a local water park who takes the young boy under his wing. Sam Rockwell's performance as Owen was particularly lauded, with The New York Times calling it "one of the most winning performances of his career."

Overall, The Way, Way Back is a touching and relatable film that speaks to the universal experience of growing up. As Rolling Stone put it, "this is a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and remember what it was like to be young and unsure of yourself."
