There’s just one thing complicating the situation for Peter Weir‘s The Way Back, from my humble Manhattan perspective. It’s a deeply admired film, but there’s just this one tiny problem. The Newmarket guys (i.e., the ones releasing it on 12.29) are keeping it under wraps, screening-wise. At least as far as my e-mail box is concerned. They showed it a couple of days ago in Los Angeles, but they’re apparently still sorting things out in terms of East Coast media.
