A-listers who spent the summer filming “The Way, Way Back” in Massachusetts unveiled their local movie at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday night. Marshfield regular Steve Carell , Massachusetts’s own Nat Faxon , Faxon’s writing and directing partner Jim Rash , actor Sam Rockwell , and actresses Toni Collette , Maya Rudolph , and Allison Janney were all in Park City, Utah, for the screening and mingled at an afterparty nearby. So far, it looks good for Faxon and Rash, who won an Oscar for their screenplay for “The Descendants.” The Hollywood Reporter’s review of “The Way, Way Back” compares it to “Adventureland” and says “the crowd-pleaser would make a great summer release.” The Los Angeles Times reports that the movie has been picked up by Fox Searchlight for distribution “in what could be one of the richest deals in Sundance Film Festival history.” The paper states: “Unconfirmed reports put the sales price at $10 million.” The film is about a kid who spends his summer working at a local water park. We’re hoping that the folks at Water Wizz in Wareham — where much of the movie was filmed — get a special screening.
