The Way Way Back ★★★★★

This is undoubtedly my favourite film of 2013. The coming of age story about a socially awkward teen (Liam James) who has been forced to spend summer at the beach with his mother (Toni Collette) and her new 'douchey' boyfriend (Steve Carell). This set up maybe seem like another cliche cinema experience however the performances and subtlety with which this film has been crafted and created, deliver one of the most genuine and enjoyable films of the year.

From this point on I will unconditionally watch anything created by or starring Jim Rash. A special mention has to be awarded to Sam Rockwell who absolutely steals this film playing a loveable, kind and larger than life water park owner.

If you have not seen this film yet then stop what you are doing, find a way to get your hands on a copy and watch it!
