The Spectacular Now

by James Ponsoldt Gala Premieres

Sutter lives for now. With his ‘no problem’ attitude, the self-possessed teenager is the life of every party. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, he gets drunk and wakes up clueless on a stranger’s lawn. Hovering over him is fellow student Aimee, who he’s never really taken much notice of until now. This introverted young woman loves to read science fiction novels – not a particularly cool pastime. But Aimee looks after the young charmer and a very special friendship blossoms. The two teenagers, who at first glance could not be more different, soon realise they have more in common than they thought.
One year after SMASHED, director James Ponsoldt returns with a sensitive love story. THE SPECTACULAR NOW is a frank and entertaining coming-of-ager.
