Definitely my most anticipated coming out of Sundance (aside from Before Midnight, of course). Woodley's performance in The Descendants was my #1 supporting female of last year, and Teller blew me away with his few scenes in Rabbit Hole. The comparisons to The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Adventureland certainly help as well. Ponsoldt has a seriously bright future.

Quote:
This adaptation of Tim Tharp’s novel The Spectacular Now captures the insecurity and confusion of adolescence without looking for tidy truths. Young actors rarely portray teens with the maturity that Teller and Woodley display, and they are phenomenal together. THE SPECTACULAR NOW is a funny, compassionate and poignant love story written by (500) DAYS OF SUMMER scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, directed by James Ponsoldt (SMASHED) and produced by Tom McNulty, Shawn Levy, Andrew Lauren and Michelle Krumm.



Starring Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Mary-Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bob Odenkirk, and Brie Larson.

Why do you separate men and women?
To give wider recognition to a variety of performances. Though if I go by what I assume you're asking, she'd still be in my top 3 of last year. I was blown the fuck away.

It sort of disappointed me that the movie was so focused on Sutter, his problems, his family, his coming of age. Still really liked it.
