Summer can suck when you've got no job, no girlfriend, and your mom’s boyfriend rates you a three out of ten as a person. That’s the wonderful life of Duncan (Liam James), a misfit teen in the new comedy-drama The Way, Way Back.
When Duncan accompanies his mother (Toni Collette) to her boyfriend’s (Steve Carell) beach house for the summer, his life seems to get a whole lot worse. But it also gets better—and so does the movie. Allison Janney injects lots of life as a chatty, tipsy neighbor during the first third of the film (and throughout).
