The Spectacular Now


The Spectacular Now
From the writers of (500) Days of Summer, although based on novel, this is the tale of 'party-animal' high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with 'the good girl'. What starts as an unlikely romance, becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth, and one that doesn't look for tidy truths.

105 minutes.

C. Fuchs quote iconAlthough it might not be a crowd pleaser along the lines of (500) Days of Summer, the film does feel like a slice of real life featuring teens on the verge of figuring out their place in the world.
