The Way, Way Back
USA | 2013 | 103 minutes | Jim Rash, Nat Faxon
An all-star cast including Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Toni Collette, and Allison Janney lead this uproarious comedy about the funny and sometimes painful summer vacation of an awkward 14-year-old and his dysfunctional family. From the Oscar®-winning writers of The Descendants.
Bad enough that his parents have divorced; but now 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James) must spend the summer at the beach house of his mother's new boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell). What looks to be a season of glum turns around when Duncan, desperate to get away from his increasingly dysfunctional family, takes a job at the Water Wizz water park, and comes under the protective wing of its manager Owen (Sam Rockwell), who guides the young boy through troubled times with every ounce of effort his good-humored slackerdom will allow.
