A week or so ago I posted about a new movie coming to theaters on July 5, 2013 called The Way, Way Back. It looks like a wonderful movie and I honestly can’t wait to see it.
The film stars Steve Carell, Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, Toni Collette, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet, Rob Corddry, AnnaSophia Robb and Liam James.
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.
Here is a trailer for the film.
The film is rated PG-13. I’m thinking of taking both of my kids to see it. My son is almost 14 and my daughter is 16. It might be a fun movie for them too.
The Way, Way Back is from the same people who brought us Juno, Little Miss Sunshine and 500 Days of Summer.
If you would like to learn more about the film you can visit the official website. You can also check out the film on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter (@TheWayWayBack). You can also check it out using the hashtag #TheWayWayBack.
