Film Fest Gent - The Spectacular Now

Sutter Keely lives in the now. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, loves his job and has no plans for the future. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finecky hovering over him. While Amy has dreams of a future, Sutter lives in the impressive delusion of a spectacular now, yet somehow, they're drawn together.
