The Silver Bullet ~ The Way, Way Back


Synopsis: Over the course of his summer break, a teenager comes into his own thanks in part to the friendship he strikes up with one of the park’s managers.

Release Date:  July 5, 2013

Thoughts: Here’s a trailer that has pretty much everything you could ask for in a comedy: a great cast, the promise of laughs not shown in the trailer, and a set-up reminiscent of the easy-going summer comedies from the 80’s and 90’s.  What surprises me is that no mention is made that the film is the directional debut of the Oscar-winning screenwriters of The Descendants (Nat Faxon and Jim Rash).  I was a huge fan of the off-beat humor in that film so am very much looking forward to seeing what Faxon/Rash have cooked up for this summertime indie that could become a sleeper hit.
