We were all rooting for Ben Affleck during the dark days in his life. But now he is back with a truly remarkable performance in the role of Jack Cunningham in The Way Back (also known as Finding the Way Back in some markets), a 2020 American sports drama film directed by Gavin O’Connor and written by Brad Ingelsby.
The Way Back turns out to be a perfect way back on-screen for Ben Affleck. The Way Back is a sports drama starring Ben Affleck as Jack Cunningham, a one-time high school basketball phenom who struggles with alcoholism as an adult.
He could have punched his ticket to college or even the pros, but, instead, he chose to walk away from the game, forfeiting his future. Jack’s glory days are long gone… but, as it turns out, not forgotten. Years later, he gets the chance to take back his life when he is asked to coach the struggling basketball team at his alma mater.
As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
