The Way, Way Back is a 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 and begins to finally find his place in the world—all during a summer he will never forget.
Thank you Nuffnang and Studiocanal for hosting the advance screening of The Way, Way Back !!! It has been awhile since we have had the chance to watch a new movie in the cinema. Oh yea, watching this movie in the director suite at Hoyts Melbourne Central definitely added some points for more enjoyment. *chang ching*
See who being pampered with comfy seat !
Overall, this is a heartwarming story. I found the movie to be something that everyone could relate to, especially a introvert person like myself. I always believe that it's okay to feel awkward with people that I don't really know, most of the time I will keep quiet and listen to other people's conversations. I try but I need to push myself harder to overcome it. However, in some moments, I will meet the right person to open up myself to and find the place where I belong.
The movie will begin screening on August 1st, 2013. I personally think that everyone should try to watch this movie!
