The Way Way Back on DVD & BluRay
The Way Way Back is the coming-of-age story of 14 year old Duncan as he sets off for summer vacation with his mother Pam, her boyfriend Trent, and Trent’s daughter Stephanie. They head to a beach house in Cape Cod for a summer of beachside fun. Duncan doesn’t get along with Trent at all, is tired of being treated like a child, and just doesn’t feel like he fits in. All of this hits its peak while at the beach house. Soon enough Duncan finds an old bike and uses it as a source of escape. Through his adventures he ends up landing a job at Water Wizz, the local water park, under the tutelage of the laid back park manager Owen. He finds confidence in this new space with new friends, but ultimately it does not solve his familial problems. The dramatic-comedy film is hilarious and warm-hearted and you really do root for Duncan.
