Not only is The Way, Way Back a passionately-crafted comedy (aside from the cinematography), it has much to offer from a human angle as well.
When it comes to independently-produced comedic dramas, what is generally the go-to storyline for such a film? You guessed it, the coming-of-age tale. That is certainly the course Academy Award-winning screenwriters Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (for The Descendants, in which they share the win with Alexander Payne) took for their directorial debut, The Way, Way Back. However, with a terrific cast and their great writing, could this be a good change in pace for the coming-of-age film?
