The coming of age comedy/drama The Way, Way Back opens this weekend in limited release. The film marks the directorial debut of The Descendants co-writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, and centers on a 14-year-old boy (Liam James) who spends his summer vacation bonding with the manager of a water park (Sam Rockwell) while staying with his mother (Toni Collette) and her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell). For more on the film, watch the trailer. The film also starsMaya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, Zoe Levin, AnnaSophia Robb, and Amanda Peet.
