Ben Affleck plays a former basketball star named Jack Cunningham, who left the hoops behind to slam dunk bottles of booze instead.
When he’s asked to coach his former high school’s basketball team, it sets both Jack and his charges on a road to redemption. Part character study, part triumph-over-adversity sports drama (albeit lacking the mandatory sentiment and clichés), The Way Back is a great showcase for Affleck, whose personal struggle with alcoholism has been well documented by the tabloids. Playing Cunningham with the absolute conviction of a guy who knows the score, he’s rarely been better.
