Comedy, Drama



The film's title conveys the joy and clarity of living in the present. But, it also stands in sharp contrast to the unknowable future. Taking place at that crossroads of restless youth and sobering adulthood, this film, which stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller, examines the angst of young romance as much as its bliss. It's about two teens finding love with each other only once they dare—or are forced—to venture outside their comfort zones and confront life beyond their high school castes.
