The Way Way Back

Pool pouter finds himself
More charm and original laughs than most recent coming-of-age films, with a terrific performance by Sam Rockwell. It overcomes its contrived formula (dysfunctional adults, kids as victims) as a 14-year-old boy finds acceptance one summer at a water park.
Rated PG-13 for sexual situation, profanity and drug abuse.
Grade: B+
