Movie Review: The Way Way Back
I like movies about love, especially non-romantic love. About a Boy, for instance, is a great movie about the love between friends. Dan in Real Life portrays perfectly the love between a father and his daughters. In Her Shoes captures the highs and lows of sisterly love.*
The Way Way Back feels like those movies. It tells the story of the love between friends and between a mother and son. I really like that. I like, too, that the closure we get at the end is the sense that everything's gonna be alright. Not perfect, but alright.
If you're like me and didn't see this movie a year ago when it was released, then watch it now. (You can check it out for free on Amazon right now.)
*I think it's important to point out that three out of the four movies I listed include Toni Collette in the cast. She really is a wonderful actress.
Thing I'm thankful for: birthday flowers
