The Spectacular Now

The Spectacular Now is an underrated masterpiece in my opinion. A very humble piece of work, with high quality acting and depth.

Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley worked together in this film before their Divergent days. These two really have great chemistry together on screen, so believable! Woodley plays the hard working introverted 18-year-old student Aimee Finicky who falls for the charming fun-loving Sutter Keely played by Teller. Wow, both roles were done so well! The surprising relationship winds up to be life altering for both of them. From the beginning of the movie, we see them both grow and develop so much, both because of each other and because of some big events throughout the movie. As hard as this is for me, I will not go into too many details or give away any spoilers. But, I will say that I really really liked watching The Spectacular Now, a very inspiring movie about life and getting to know yourself. Great morals to this story!


2020 UPDATE:

While re-posting this and updating my blog, I this very important to say; Shailene Woodley has come SO far! Check her out in Big Little Lies.
