The Way, Way Back

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

An awkward teen at un­de­clared war with his mother’s boyfriend (Steve Carell) finds so­lace at his wa­ter­slide park sum­mer hol­i­day job, where he’s taken un­der the wing of the gre­gar­i­ous man­ager played by Sam Rock­well. (Re­port, Page 12.) They say: Great re­views for the cast (in­clud­ing Toni Col­lette and Rob Corddry), a stealthy emo­tional whoomp and the un­flinch­ing comic truth of the script, writ­ten by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash ( The Descen­dants). Di­rected by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (de­but). Wesay: Sweet and smart, but the ‘‘in­die com­ing of age US com­edy drama’’ is fast be­com­ing as genre-for­mu­laic as the cop movie or rom-com. Run­ning time 103 min­utes. Screens at Aus­tralia Fair, Pa­cific Fair, Tweed City, Har­bour Town, The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, Robina, Coolan­gatta.
