The Way Back ★★★★

i've always liked ben affleck, despite his brother having had the better roles/movies (the assassination of jesse james and manchester by the sea are great movies), so it's nice to see that his performance in this film is straight-up the best in his entire filmography so far

also made me surprisingly emotional too which is always a bonus, it is pretty predictable - but it makes up for it by doing everything great in the end
