Director: James Ponsoldt

With Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler

"A sincere, refreshingly unaffected look at teenagers and their attitudes about the future."
—The Hollywood Reporter

In this bittersweet coming-of-age dramedy from the writers of (500) Days of Summer, sociable high schooler Sutter (relative newcomer Miles Teller, in a magnetic performance) is endlessly charming and effortlessly popular—never mind that he is also arrogant and reckless and possibly an alcoholic, forever nursing a whiskey-infused 7-11 beverage cup. After a post-breakup all-night binge, he wakes up on the lawn of his classmate Aimee (Shailene Woodley, The Descendants)—a sweet, uncorrupted, and whip-smart girl with spirited ambition despite her uncool status—and the pair instantly connect, for better or worse. Funny and tender with moments of astonishing tragedy, the film co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights).

Producers: Tom McNulty, Shawn Levy, Andrew Lauren, Michelle Krumm
