The Way Way Back

I've just come fresh from the cinema after watching The Way Way Back, and what a lovely film that was to watch. As you'd expect it is a Sundance Festival movie and would definitely be classed as one of those movies that would not pull in mainstream audiences. The film is about an awkward 14 year old boy who is on vacation with his mum, her boyfriend and his daughter. Not liking the boyfriend much, (who knew Steve Carell could be so mean!) and having trouble fitting in with the older teenagers, Duncan reminds us of how it was when we were young and awkwardly inclined, and throughout the movie your heart goes out to him. Thankfully he finds happiness at the local water park and a role model friend in the shape of Sam Rockwell, who steals the show with his entertaining quick witted character. Similar to the movie Adventureland, this is a great one to end your summer vacation with and it will help you reminisce about all those summer vacations you used to have when you were young.
