The Spectacular Now

With sly humor and an intensity of feeling, The Spectacular Now creates a vivid, three-dimensional portrait of youth confronting the funny, thrilling and perilous business of modern love and adulthood. This is the tale of Sutter Keely (Miles Teller), a high school senior and effortless charmer, and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with "the good girl" Aimee Finecky (Shailene Woodley). 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.

Directed by: James Ponsoldt (Smashed, '12)

Written by: Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (500 Days of Summer, '09) and based on The Spectacular Now novel by Tim Tharp

Co-starring: Jennifer Jason Leigh / Kyle Chandler

Running time: 1 hr 35 mins

Film Website + Trailer

The film starts at 7:15 pm. Let's gather in the lobby 15-20 minutes before show time. Afterwards, we can go to Tribeca Tavern (6004 Falls of Neuse Rd) for food/drink/conversation.

    Sorry to miss the movie and discussion, but the day just didn't go as planned. To say the least!

    Just an FYI...
    Falls Taproom is closed. We should select another location.

    I really hate to miss seeing this one with my favorite group of movie fanatics/critics, but if I can't get back in time from a family gathering at Lake Gaston to join you on this one, I'll definitely go see it on my own---or with any of you that want/need to see it a second time! So if not on Saturday, I'll hope to see some of you on Monday at the other upcoming film event, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints."
