The Way Way Back

This post is sponsored by Hoyts Distribution

One of the great things about blogging is that occasionally, I get invited to attend these kinds of events.

The Way Way Back

No, I don't often get invited  to sit at the back of a boat eating and drinking.  I do enough of that with Mr Beach House.  But next week, my son and I have been invited to a private screening of a coming of age movie called The Way Way Back

Ah the teenage years

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant
coming-of-age story of 14-year-old Duncan's (Liam James)
summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her
overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter
Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the
introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious
Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water
park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen,
Duncan slowly opens up and begins to finally find his place in
the world—all during a summer he will never forget.

It's the school holidays and I am going on a date with the Beach House Brat.  From the look of the trailer, I think this is one movie we will both enjoy.  I shall let you know next week.  I adore Toni Colette, so am looking forward to it.

If you can't load that version here it is 
Weirdly, the movie trailer just brought a tear to my eye.  As an ex teacher, I have a soft spot for teenage boys.

The Way Way Back
I think this is going to be good.


  1. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this movie..-love dee x

  2. Looks good, I wonder if I could persuade my very own teenage boys to see this with their aging mother?

    I'm glad you have a soft spot for teenage boys, it's a tricky age and stage and they need a bit of tenderness for all their gruffness.

  3. I saw Toni Colette in an interview for this and thought it looked good. Shame I don't get to the movies often! Enjoy your time with your son :)

  4. Just brought tears to my eyes too. I will definitely be taking my 13 year old to see this too. Have a great time!

    Best wishes,

  5. looks great, enjoy. Not advertised here in the West yet. I would be keen to go, will organise a girls night out as most of our children are in their early 20's and won't necessarily come with us, sad I know. xxx Rae

  6. It looks like a great movie - Kai is keen to see it to so I will be interested to hear what you think :)

  7. Looks good. I look forward to hearing your thoughts x
