    The Spectacular Now

    What starts as an unlikely romance becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth - one that doesn't look for tidy truths. This is the tale of Sutter Keely, a high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with 'the good girl' Aimee Finecky.

    Chicago Reader

    [A] nuanced and unsentimental coming-of-age film.

    Miami Herald
    August 23, 2013

    This adaptation of Tim Tharp's novel, directed with delicate restraint by James Ponsoldt, sneaks up on you. It makes you laugh, then it breaks your heart.

    Detroit News
    August 23, 2013

    Teller and Woodley hum together, and the movie does their performances justice.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    August 22, 2013

    This coming-of-age movie should appeal to smart, sensitive young people who haven't been exposed to the better examples of the genre.

    Minneapolis Star Tribune
    August 16, 2013

    The film is engrossing all the way through, the sweetest, saddest, most humane movie I've seen all year.

    Denver Post
    August 16, 2013

    So many films featuring teens seem overstimulated or familiar. This one strikes a deep, rich note and holds it.

    March 16, 2017

    The Spectacular Now works because it insists on allowing these actors and characters to pull you in with their alarming emotional candor.

    June 19, 2016

    There are scenes, moments, and dialogue in this film that ring so true that it all comes rushing back, a flood of memories and emotions and a little bit of pain.

    April 17, 2016

    An unusually evasive piece of filmmaking - hard to pin down, but all the more worthwhile for its craftiness.

    Under the Radar
    August 18, 2014

    James Ponsoldt's The Spectacular Now is one of the uncommon pieces of teen cinema that rings true.

    May 14, 2014

    Every time the film teeters on the precipice of a generic plot point it satisfyingly withdraws into more subtle and nuanced territory that ultimately coalesces in a final act that is sentimental without being sugary.

    April 08, 2014

    t's a coming-of-age-slash-first-love story, with beguiling leads, a frank, bittersweet script, a lived-in, rustic setting (the outskirts of Athens, Georgia), an intense awareness of class difference and a mood that's all its own.
