Hello Vancouver! Welcome back from your long weekend! Did you get some rest? We certainly hope so, because it’s time to ease back into your work week with another contest designed to make you want to head right back out on vacation again. Dork Shelf and Fox Searchlight want to send 10 lucky winners pairs of passes to see an advance screening of THE WAY, WAY BACK on Wednesday, July 10th at 7:00pm.
THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world – all during a summer he will never forget.
The Way, Way Back opens exclusively in Toronto on Friday, July 5th, expands to Vancouver on Friday July 12th and to the rest of Canada throughout the month, but here’s how you can get a chance to see it first! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with WAY WAY BACK in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday July 7th.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf all summer long for more great contests, as well as the latest news, reviews, interviews, and features! In the meantime, check out our interview with writers and directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon, and enjoy this clip from the movie to tide you over!
