Duncan is a 14-year-old boy struggling to fit in anywhere and dealing with all the problems that most teenagers are forced to deal with at some stage. His mother Pam has a new boyfriend, Trent, who happens to be a jerk with a keen interest in humiliating Duncan at every opportunity. As the summer nears, the family embark on a vacation at Trent's beach house where he meets their new neighbour's daughter Susanna who, far from seeing him as a socially awkward and embarrassing individual, warms to Duncan immediately. He also meets the unprofessional and extroverted manager of the Water Wizz water park, Owen, who offers him a job and some excitement on his otherwise uninteresting vacation and subsequently helps him grow in confidence and self-belief.
'The Way, Way Back' is a heart-warming coming of age story about a boy who just needs a push to get his social life on track. It has been directed and written by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash ('The Descendants') in their directorial debuts and produced by Tom Rice ('The Presence', 'The Rising Place') and Kevin J. Walsh. It is set to hit cinemas just in time for summer with a release date of July 5th 2013.
