When boy, (Miles Teller, as Sutter) meets girl (Shailene Woodley, as Aimee) in this delightfully fresh love story, it's as if two distinct species have come together for the first time.
He's the popular player in high school. She's the studious, shy girl, who's never had a boyfriend. She's on her way to college the next year. He's going nowhere.
Their meeting is under rather unusual circumstances. And were off from there.
Sure you've seen far too many teenage love stories already. They're usually predictable fantasies about stock characters in a fictitious school that bears little resemblance to reality. That's where this sensitive movie is different.
