Film Forum: 'The Spectacular Now'

Tom Tharp's lauded novel is the basis for this peppy, restless, bittersweet ode to the fleeting nature of youth. A charming high school senior (Miles Teller) with little ambition but large capacity for alcohol bobs along aimlessly until he befriends the class wallflower (Shailene Woodley). Special Jury Award at Sundance. Discussion to follow.
