Toni Collette will be attending the Sydney Film Festival this June to promote “The Way, Way Back”. The comedy will have its festival premiere on June 06. More information, as well as tickets, can be found on the SFF’s official website, a longer synopsis on the film is here: Funny, smart and uplifting, The Way, Way Back is a well-crafted coming-of-age comedy with winning performances by a stellar cast. Fourteen-year-old Duncan (Liam James) is forced to spend the summer vacation with his mother Pam (Toni Collette), her condescending boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell) and his mean-girl daughter. Constantly humiliated, Duncan struggles until he meets Owen (Sam Rockwell, in arguably his best performance), the manager of a somewhat disheveled Water Wizz water park. Rebellious, relaxed, and very funny, Owen pokes fun at Duncan, but at the same time gives him the confidence to stand up for himself and find his place in the world. Directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon are the Oscar®-winning writers of The Descendents and both accomplished actors themselves – Rash in Community and Faxon in Ben and Kate. Here they have made a heartwarming, inspiring and hilarious film.
