On July 29 the stars of The Spectacular Now celebrated the film’s release at the Vista Theatre in Los Angeles.
Director James Ponsoldt, along with cast members Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Dayo Okeniyi, and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber were all in attendance.
The Spectacular Now focuses on Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) who lives in the now. “It’s a good place for him. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, he’s the life of the party, loves his job at a men’s clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he’s never far from his supersized, whisky-fortified thirst-master cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky (Shailene Woodley) hovering over him. She’s different: the “nice girl” who reads science fiction and doesn’t have a boyfriend. She does have dreams, while Sutter lives in a world of impressive self-delusion. And yet they’re drawn to each other.”
