The Spectacular Now (R) 95 minutes A-
Leaving Las Vegas for the YA set
Starring: Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler
Not only is this the best coming-of-age film of the year, it's destined to be in the running for my best overall film for 2013. Based on Tim Tharps's novel, a National Book Award Finalist in 2008, this unlikely love story is charming, tender and pretty darn spectacular. Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley are stars in the making.
