Click continue & enjoy…
Written by 500 Days of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and based on Tim Tharp‘s novel of the same name, the movie revolves around a hard-partying high school senior Sutter, whose philosophy on life changes when he meets the not-so-typical nice girl Aimee.
The Spectacular Now captures the insecurity and confusion of adolescence without looking for tidy truths, and stars Miles Teller as Sutter & Shailene Woodley as Aimee.
Here’s more about this spectacular duo:
Sutter Keely, a high school senior, charming and self-possessed, is the life of the party, loves his job at a men’s clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he’s never far from his supersized, whisky-fortified Thirst Master cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky hovering over him. She’s different: the “nice girl” who reads science fiction and doesn’t have a boyfriend. While Aimee has dreams of a future, Sutter lives in the impressive delusion of a spectacular now, yet somehow, they’re drawn together.
Also starring Kaitlyn Dever, Masam Holden, Brie Larson, Dayo Okeniyi, Kyle Chandler, Bob Odenkirk, Andre Royo and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, The Spectacular Now is set to hit limited theaters on August 2nd, 2013.
