"The Spectacular Now" is the story of Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) - high school senior, effortless charmer, and self-proclaiemd 'life of the party' - and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with the 'nice girl' Aimee Fineky. While Aimee dreams of the future, Sutter lives in the now. And yet somehow, they're drawn together. 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 directed by James Ponsoldt and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber ("500 Days Summer"), and also features wonderful supporting turns from Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
