A rare look into the real emotions, immediacies, uncertainties and excitement of youth on the verge of real adulthood, The Spectacular Now doesn't have a false storytelling bone in its cinematic body. Of course, there are always scenes that don't make it beyond the cutting-room floor, and we've got an exclusive, fun little deleted scene from the movie, hitting DVD and Blu-ray on January 14.
The amusing moment finds Miles Teller as Sutter Keely, running late to pick up his girlfriend (played by Brie Larson) for school in an unconventional way. Watch the vid to see what happens...
Based on Tim Tharp's wonderful novel, The Spectacular Now follows Sutter Keely, a charismatic teen who hides some secret pain as he charmingly parties through the end of high school with no goals beyond enjoying The Spectacular Now. But his girlfriend (Larson) has loftier goals and leaves him behind, opening him up to have some unlikely fun with brainy, optimistic Aimee (played by Shailene Woodley) in her first true relationship. Are they good for each other, or will Sutter ruin everything that he touches?
Delivering some of the most relatable and authentic performances of the year, The Spectacular Now DVD and Blu-ray offers more deleted scenes, audio commentary with director James Ponsoldt, and a four-part making-of featurette.
