The Spectacular Now
Coming of age is a popular theme in film. The Spectacular Now is a strong addition to this genre. All the elements of awkwardness, goals, friends, family struggle, love and decision making are here. The girl has dreams of the future, the boy lives for the now. The standout for me was in the acting. Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller turn in honest, heartfelt performances. This is a solid film I enjoyed.
