'The Spectacular Now' - Sundance 2013

The Spectacular Now, Sundance 2013

The Spectacular Now, Sundance 2013

One of my most anticipated films premiering at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival this January - The Spectacular Now directed by James Ponsoldt (of last year's Sundance hit Smashed as well as Off the Black) co-starring Shailene Woodley (The Descendants, "Secret Life of the American Teenager") and Miles Teller (Footloose, Project X) as high school lovers. "After being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter (Teller) gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky (Woodley) hovering over him. Not a member of the cool crowd, she's different: the 'nice girl' who reads science fiction and doesn't have a boyfriend. She does have dreams, while Sutter lives in a world of impressive self-delusion. And yet they're drawn to each other." From the Sundance.org film guide.
