    The Way Way Back immediately conjures up summer. The soundtrack instantly does the same thing. From Edie Brickell's original contribution the lithe dreamy folk of "For the Time Being" to Ben Kweller's "Out The Door", it's got the requisite sun-kissed feel good flare. At the same time, classics from UFO ["YoungBlood"] and INXS ["New Sensation"] rev up the energy with just the right amount of bombast.

    For one of the year's most whimsical films, there's an equally wonderful companion album. Summer's here with The Way Way Back.
