The coming-of-age movie tells the story of shy 14-year-old Duncan (Liam James, TV’s The Killing), who’s dragged on vacation by his mom (Toni Collette, Mental) and her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World). At a local water park, Duncan makes friends with gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell, Seven Psychopaths), and the two form a powerful bond. Over the summer, Duncan learns to swim through the challenges of life, love, family and friendship.
Writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash also directed The Way, Way Back, their first time as helmers. And critics agree that they did well. The Atlantic‘s Christopher Orr wrote, “An unexpected yet irresistible cross between Meatballs and The Ice Storm, The Way, Way Back just may be the best movie of the summer.”
Fox has included a number of special features on the discs. On both the DVD and Blu-ray are:
- deleted scenes
- featurette “Tour of the Water Park”
- featurette “The Filmmakers: Jim & Nat”
- and ensemble featurettes.
The Blu-ray adds a making-of featurette and a downloadable digital copy and instant streaming through UltraViolet.
