The first trailer for Nat Faxon and Jim Rash’s (The Descendants) coming of age comedy/drama “The Way, Way Back” has been released. The film centers on a teenager who comes into his own thanks in part to the friendship he strikes up with one of the park’s managers. Steve Carrell, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janey, Toni Collette, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, Zoe Levin, AnnaSophia Robb, and Amanda Peet also star. The Way, Way Back opens on July 5th in limited release.
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.
