Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for the coming of age comedy/drama The Way, Way Back. 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). The Adventureland-esque pic looks to be a nice little summer film with a healthy mix of comedy and drama, and there’s a refreshing lack of cynicism in this trailer. Rockwell and Allison Janney are always swell, and the two are most definitely the comedic highlights here. Matt caught the film at Sundance and was rather mixed in his review, but I find this debut trailer to be promising.
