The Way, Way Back is the coming–of-age story of a 14-year-old introvert who spends a difficult summer vacation with his single mom, her not so warm and fuzzy boyfriend and his daughter. Having a hard time fitting in, the teen finds unlikely friendships with the prickly manager and the misfit workers at a run down water park. Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph and Liam James star in the pic directed and scripted by Oscar-winning The Descendants scribes Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. Fox Searchlight won a nearly $10 million bidding war for the film in one of the most spirited auctions in recent memory at Sundance. It’s set for release July 5th. Check out the trailer:
