The Way, Way Back
In Theaters: July 5
Directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who co-wrote The Descendents, hit the sweet spot with this poignant winner of a comedy about a mom (Toni Colette) who sticks her teen son (Liam James) with her bullying boyfriend (an outstanding Steve Carell, breaking type). The acting is aces, including Sam Rockwell as the water-park loser the kid bonds with.
