At the movies: The Way Way Back
When Duncan is forced to go to the beach with his mother, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend’s daughter, he expects the worst. After all, his mother’s boyfriend isn’t the nicest guy and his daughter is just as bad. Duncan does what he can to get away from them and finds an ally in the most unlikely place.
The Way Way Back is the best movie I’ve seen in a while. It’s Duncan’s coming of age story and my friend and I were totally charmed by it. It’s funny, thoughtful, and heartwarming. I thought the acting was terrific and I was fully engaged throughout the movie. I wish they’d make more movies like this one! This is one movie you won’t want to miss!
