Australian actress Toni Collette premiered her Massachusetts movie “The Way, Way Back’’ as part of the Sydney Film Festival on Thursday. The coming-of-age dramedy — which was co-written by Oscar-winning, Mass.-bred actor-writer Nat Faxon and stars Marshfield’s Steve Carell — was mostly filmed at the Water Wizz in East Wareham last year. It had its first showing at the Sundance Film Festival in January and screened at the Independent Film Festival Boston in April. You can see it in wide release in July.
