With sly humor and an intensity of feeling, The Spectacular Now creates a vivid, three-dimensional portrait of youth confronting the funny, thrilling and perilous business of modern love and adulthood. This is the tale of Sutter Keely (Miles Teller), a high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with “good girl” Aimee Finecky (Shailene Woodley). What starts as an unlikely romance becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth—one that doesn’t look for tidy truths. Also starring Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, The Spectacular Now is directed by James Ponsoldt and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber ((500) Days of Summer).
“The film is engrossing all the way through, the sweetest, saddest, most humane movie I’ve seen all year.” -Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune (Read the full review here)
