The Spectacular Now 89 Cast: Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh Director: James Ponsoldt Rating: R, for alcohol use, language and some sexuality — all involving teens Running time: 95 minutes Sutter (Miles Teller) is a charming rogue of a high school senior. Happy to be the life of the party, he’s a motor-mouth with a sweet and generous nature that helps to mask his growing alcohol problem. Aimee (Shailene Woodley) is a slightly offbeat young woman who loves science fiction and graphic novels, and at first can’t believe that someone as popular and dashing as Sutter would give her the time of day. But he does, and their friendship blossoms into something a good deal more significant, even though both are facing an uneven future.
