The Spectacular Now

A happy-go-lucky, borderline alcoholic high school senior (Miles Teller from the Footloose remake) gets a dose of reality when his fun-loving girlfriend dumps him. He takes up with a smart, nerdy girl (The Descendants' Shailene Woodley), but still can't get his life together. This slow, observational dramedy is a bit glum, but it's one of the most painfully authentic depictions of teenage life in this or any other year. Based on Tim Tharp's young-adult novel. 95 minutes R.
