Based on the beloved book by Tim Tharp, THE SPECTACULAR NOW is the story of Sutter Keely (Miles Teller), a high school senior and self-proclaimed "life of the party," who unexpectedly falls in love with "nice girl" Aimee Fineky (Shailene Woodley). While Aimee dreams of the future, Sutter lives in the now, and yet somehow, they're drawn together. What starts as an unlikely romance becomes a sharp- eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth. Costarring Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

This is real life.
And that deserves all the stars in the world.
(I also love Sutter as a character, and thought his character development was off the charts. Just, FWI)
Another depressing portrayl of modern American culture unfortunately. I can do without watching it as it is all around to watch for free. Besides this is not escapism. It is just depressing.
Also the guy kid has this annoying husky voice that just grates my ear drums. I suffered through. The girl kid is a great actress. I saw her in something else. She just comes across as all American girl next door. Of course the mother gets no blame in the end which is contrary to what is half wrong with the kid. Of course the father is shown to be the jerk and the problem, which is not really the problem. But there can't be any good role model father characters any more in Hollywood/American culture. Umm . . . it is a decent movie but it is one of those . . . drama for drama sake movies so the actors can crow about how great of an actor they are when they are supposed to be in order to get paid. Dunno. Kinda cheap attempt at good entertainment in a way.
