The Way Back ★★★½

Gavin O’Connor knows how to craft an inspirational sports drama that deals with alcoholism. It’s no Warrior but I really enjoyed it.

If you’ve seen any sports film or addiction drama though, you’ve probably already read the script.

Ben Affleck gives one of his career best performances and I really liked the film’s subtlety for the most part. The final shot is gorgeous.
