Netflix: The Way Way Back


I remembered something positive about the movie from Mark Kermode, and was looking for something Kel and I could both watch and enjoy. It’s a coming-of-age story for a withdrawn teenager in a broken up family, with some excellent performances (particularly from Toni Collette and Sam Rockwell).


If you’re looking for something that engages with a range of family issues, but keeps the explicit content to a minimum, and/or you’re a fan of Sam Rockwell or Pacman, you’ll enjoy this.
