Evan’s review published on Letterboxd:
I really enjoyed it. Sam Rockwell was awesome. All in all The Way, Way Back is a solid coming of age drama/comedy.
Although, I did have one problem with the movie. It moved way too fast. Not nearly enough time is focussed on the relationships between Duncan and Owen, as well as Duncan and Susanna. They just weren't developed as much as they should have been. Don't get me wrong Duncan & Owen's friendship was displayed, I just thought there could have been more to it. By the end I was left wanting a lot more and slightly underwhelmed. Still I was very much able to relate myself to Duncan when I was his age. More development could have made this movie great.
