THEWAY, WAY BACK [M] Directors: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash Starring: Liam James, Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, Toni Collette, AnnaSophia Robb The youngster James anchors the films leading rolewith quiet authority By LEIGH PAATSCH YOU have this seen this movie before. This is a coming-of-age movie. All that is missing is a narrator at the end to tell us and after that summer, things would never be the same again. While this sickly sweet sentiment is all The Way, Way Back has to say as a movie, it is conveyed with such a perfect blend of regret, hope and conviction that it just cannot sound cliched. The lost boy in this poignant comedy-drama is Duncan (Liam James), a teen so awkward he looks like an extra from a Diary Of a Wimpy Kid sequel. Duncan has been forced to spend the summer holidays with his recently divorced mother, Pam (Toni Collette), at her new boyfriends beach house. It shouldnt be so miserable an experience on paper. But that boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell) is a total creep, semi subtly bullying Duncan when Pam is looking the other way. As Duncan settles into his new surrounds not the most glamorous coastal haven in the US, it must be said the month ahead seems more like a decade. All that keeps him going is a chance meeting with Owen (Sam Rockwell), a dedicated lifelong slacker who has somehow found himself running the local water theme park. Did someone say father figure? But it is not so cut-and dried as that when it comes to Owen. He is not the kind of guy capable of setting an example to anyone. However, he can sense the overpowering angst that is zapping Duncan into submission, and does his best to cut the kid a break. Owen invents a job for Duncan at the water park. In the weeks that follow, the boys fellow employees become the family he may not have always wanted, but certainly needs right now. There are no big performances or heavy moments in The Way, Way Back. Writing-directing team Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants) keep the tone of their work carefully positioned between funny-bittersweet and funny-sad. It is a difficult zone for a movie to land in Little Miss Sunshine remains the most successful example in recent memory but an accomplished acting ensemble makes it look deceptively easy. Carell works wilfully against type to serve up the most unlikeable character he has ever played. Collette is her usual consistent self. The youngster James anchors the films leading role with quiet authority after an uncertain start. However, the path to complete enjoyment of The Way,Way Back is comprehensively cleared by Rockwell, who captures the films winning combo of quickfire wit and slow-burning heart in his every scene.
