I recently saw The Way Way Back. My first impression of the film was that "Oh may Gad! Steve Carrell can actually pull off being a dick!" Jokes aside, I thought the acting in this film was really solid. An impressive cast though I thought that the lead actor, Toni Collette, wasn't as impressive as the others. I could say certain parts of it were frustrating when reality seemed to get unnecessarily suspended (looking at the asinine dance scene), but I understand the purpose of said scenes so it's definitely forgivable.
Sam Rockwell is simply put, amazing. Rockwell is an extremely natural actor and I thought his character was just really well written. I had only seen in him in major studio fare (Iron Man 2, Cowboys and Aliens) previously. The man is a fine actor and I now look to see more films with him in it.
Overall, a really nice summer coming of age film. It became cliche at times, but was mainly a touching and unique affair. It made some really personal connections for me that I won't get into detail on. It's films like these that make me hopeful for the future of cinema. If only this could make as much money as Transformers 4: Age of da Wahlburg.
