Cinémas Palme D'Or in Palm Desert presents a special screening of the new comedy "The Way, Way Back," with a live Q&A session with the film's co-writer and co-director Jim Rash. The Q&A will take place this Saturday evening, July 17 after the 7:15 p.m. screening. The Q&A with Mr. Rash will be hosted by Cinémas Palme D'Or host and co-owner Steve Mason (Mason and Ireland Show - 710 AM).
"The Way, Way Back," is the story of a shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
Co-owner of Cinemas Palme D'Or, Steve Mason, states "We are proud to welcome the Academy Award winning writer of 'The Descendants' to Cinémas Palme d'Or. Jim Rash, along with writing partner Nat Faxon, have co-written and co-directed the new independent film 'The Way, Way Back.' Jim is also a very funny actor, best known for his role on NBC's 'Community.' 'The Way, Way Back' is a funny, smart coming-of-age film starring Steve Carrell, Toni Collette and Allison Janney. This is an all ages screening."
“The Way, Way Back" debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last January and is currently in a limited theatrical release. The film is rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language, some sexual content and brief drug material has a run-time of 1 hour and 43 minutes.
