'The Spectacular Now'

Here's a high-school romance between a hard-partying dude (Footloose's Miles Teller) and a shy nerd (The Descendants' Shailene Woodley). Overly familiar, maybe, but we like the pedigree. The director is James Ponsoldt, who made a splash at last year's festival with Smashed, and the screenwriters (adapting Tim Tharp's novel) are Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, who wrote (500) Days of Summer.
