We recently sat down with multi-hyphenate filmmakers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash to discuss their new film, THE WAY WAY BACK. The Oscar winning writing duo behind THE DESCENDANTS spills about their writing process, what it was like to direct for the first time, how the film came about, and the long road to get the film made.
THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14 year old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and his daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in the gregarious manager of the Water Wizz water park &mdash and this funny, clandestine friendship helps Duncan open up to and find his place in the world. This Sundance Film Festival favorite features a stellar cast including Steve Carrel, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, and Allison Janney.
THE WAY WAY BACK opens Friday 7/5 at the Angelikas in Plano, TX and Fairfax, VA
