You will be hard-pressed to find better performances by young actors this year than Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller in The Spectacular Now. They're simply stunning and reason enough to see the movie. It's practically just a bonus that the actual script they and director James Ponsoldt are bringing to life is a unique, charming and painfully real look at teenage relationships, both with their peers and their parents. It hits theaters on August 2, 2013, but we'd like to invite you to see the film a few days early.

The Spectacular Now is not just another teen romance movie. In fact, it's not exactly like its own trailer, which focuses on the happy, fluffy side of the story instead of some of the more complex issues the movie works through. This clip, though, gives you a pretty good sense of the tone, and it only gets better from here.
