I hope that the movie The Way Back will be good as the trailer is! It looks like a sports story, but it’s a lot more about the ordinary man fighting with himself and bad decisions from the past. As always, Ben Affleck has done his job magnificently, bring this story very close to everybody and make us wonder about our decisions and future steps in our lives.
The story follows Jack Cummingham, a former basketball star, who has lost his wife and struggling with alcoholism… Suddenly, the place of the local high school basketball team coach gets empty and he receives an offer to fill it. As usual, the team sucks, but slowly, under his management, they are getting better and better… As the team starts with winnings, he gets more motivated to get himself together and continue with a normal life, but it’s not easy like that…
