An unexpected romance yields surprising results - plus affecting performances by Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley ("The Descendants") - in director James Ponsoldt's ("Smashed") version of the Tim Tharp novel.
Teller plays a popular high-schooler whose drinking leads him to stumble in life and to cross the path of a bookish schoolmate (Woodley) who opens him to new possibilities. Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler and Mary Elizabeth Winstead also are featured. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Ponsoldt; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
