Based on the beloved book by Timm Sharp, The Spectacular Now is the story of Sutter Keely (Miles Teller) - high school senior, effortless charmer, and self-proclaiemd "life of the party" - and of how he unexpectedly falls in love with the "nice girl" Aimee Fineky (Shailene Woodley). While Aimee dreams of the future, Sutter lives in the now. And yet somehow, they're drawn together. What starts as an unlikely romance becomes a sharp-eyed, straight-up snapshot of the heady confusion and haunting passion of youth - one that doesn't look for tidy truths. As the movie makes its debut on Blu-ray January 14, we have an exclusive clip from this critical favorite, which features co-star Brie Larson arguing with Miles Teller's Sutter about his new found infatuation Amy. Check out this endearing moment, and then be sure to pick up the movie next week to add to your best of 2013 collection. »
