Known Trivia

  • Nicholas Hoult was considered for the lead role before Miles Teller was cast.
  • Thomas McDonnell was originally cast in the role of Sutter Keely.
  • Saoirse Ronan was originally offered the role of Aimee.
  • In order to secure actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, whose agents were hesitant about the role due to the small budget, producers told her agents that Julianne Moore also desperately wanted the role and if she didn’t say yes within that day, they’d give it to Moore.

Plot: A hard-partying high school senior's philosophy on life changes when he meets the not-so-typical "nice girl." Full summary » |  »

Story: Sutter Keely lives in the now. It’s a good place for him. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, he’s the life of the party, loves his job at a men’s clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he’s never far from his supersized, whiskey-fortified thirst-master cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky hovering over him. She’s different: the “nice girl” who reads science fiction and doesn’t have a boyfriend. While Amy has dreams of a future, Sutter lives in the impressive delusion of a spectacular now, yet somehow, they’re drawn together. Written byProduction
