Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller give ardent, award-caliber performances as teens with divergent views of the future in this raw and remarkably restrained film version of Tim Tharp's novel. Because director James Ponsoldt and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber  dodge the coming-of-age clichés, the movie hits you like a shot in the heart.
