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 “the 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. The film was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber (“(500) Days of Summer”) and is based on the book by Tim Tharp. The film also features wonderful supporting turns from Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Teller and Woodley already have received special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and the award buzz is only intensifying for this film, which is indeed spectacular:
