NBFF Review: The Way Way Back

The closing night film for the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival is a real audience pleaser.  The Way Way Back is a fairly standard coming-of-age story about an introverted boy opening up to others thanks to good-natured people he befriends, away from his family.  The film is not breaking any new ground nor is it […]
