People often hold onto a few key items in their lives that hold sentimental value, even when they know it’s time to upgrade, as their possessions bring endless good memories. This is certainly the case with Sam Rockwell’s character, Owen, in the independent comedy-drama, ‘The Way, Way Back.’ Owen owns a run down, but classic, vehicle that he refers to as being “Just the right amount of shitty.”

‘The Way, Way Back’ tells the coming-of-age story of Duncan (Liam James), as he’s forced to take a summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin). Finding it difficult to fit into the beach community where Trent has a summer house, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen (Rockwell), the outgoing and daring manager of the nearby Water Wizz Water Park. Through his clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly learns to become more social and finally find his place in the world. Not only does the teenager finally have the courage to confront his mother over Trent’s deceitful and condescending ways, he also finds the nerve to pursue a romantic relationship with the girl next door, Susanna (AnnaSophia Robb).
