The Way Way Back
Steve Carell. Maya Rudolph. Toni Collette. Coming of age movies. I'm an unabashed enthusiast of every one of these things, so there's not gonna be a whole lot of objectivity here. But man, The Way Way Back—great stuff. This is a movie you'd watch to see a truthful depiction of the awkwardness that is 14 years old, so you can simmer on how very badly grown ups do tend to behave, to watch Steve Carell not play the nice guy for once—but instead a total turd, to remember—maybe—what it was that finally made YOU grow the fuck up.
