Overview

Tim Tharp's unsentimental tale of adolescent frustration comes to the screen in this comedy-drama following the story of a sociable high-school senior whose self-delusion shattered by his emerging friendship with an unpopular classmate. Sutter Keely is one of the most popular kids in his class. Outgoing and fun-loving, he's completely oblivious as to what awaits him beyond high school. Lately, however, his drinking has started to become a problem. So when Sutter's girlfriend breaks things off, he reaches for the bottle without hesitation. Awakening in the grass under the gaze of studious, practical-minded sci-fi nerd Aimee Finicky, he isn't quite sure how he got into such a predicament. Over time, however, the two teens who couldn't be any more different on the surface realize they have more in common than either ever suspected. Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead star.

Reviews:
"[A] culturally astute drama, spiked with enough comedy to make it splendidly intoxicating to watch." - 08/01/2013 Los Angeles Times


"[U]nforced, unhurried, unpretentious....This story of adolescents on the brink of adulthood is refreshingly, and endearingly, unlike the overheated features that have come to define the genre." - 08/01/2013 Wall Street Journal


4 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t compassionately conveys the confusion, insecurities and joys that are a quintessential part of being 18." - 08/02/2013 USA Today


4 stars out of 4 -- "A lovely film about two high school seniors who look, speak and feel like real 18-year-old middle-American human beings." - 08/02/2013 RogerEbert.com


"What’s different, and irresistibly so, about THE SPECTACULAR NOW is the way that familiar romantic configuration has been rejuvenated by a healthy dose of authenticity." - 08/01/2013 A.V. Club


"Much of this patiently achieved success flows from Miles Teller’s winning, seemingly effortless performance as Sutter, in all his laziness and charm, open-mindedness and fatalism, always with a glimpse of the unease beneath." - 08/02/2013 New York Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "James Ponsoldt's funny and touching coming-of-age tale covers old ground with disarming freshness." - 08/01/2013 Rolling Stone

"What beautiful work by Shailene Woodley....It’s a wonderfully written role, and Woodley is brilliant in every second she is onscreen." - 08/08/2013 Chicago Sun-Times
