Living for ‘Now’

Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley star in coming-of-age charmer

The Spectacular Now

The Spectacular Now

Blu-ray $24.99 / DVD $19.99 (Lionsgate Home Entertainment)

A charming, popular, live-for-the-moment high school senior Sutter (Miles Teller) falls for the shy, studious “girl next door” dreamer Aimee (Shailene Woodley) in this film-festival coming-of-age charmer that broke into the mainstream last summer. Can Sutter see past his “spectacular now” to what might lie ahead, both good and bad? Based on popular young-adult novel by Tim Tharp, it’s a sharp, soulful teen movie that tells it like it is, with a strong supporting cast (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kyle Chandler, Brie Larson, and Bob Odenkirk from TV’s Breaking Bad). Bonus features include a four-part making-of feature, deleted scenes and commentary.
