The Spectacular Now

2013 is behind us, and 2014 lies ahead, but there are likely still a handful of movies from the past year you haven't yet caught up on. And one worth making room for is James Ponsoldt's "The Spectacular Now."

Starring Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, and with a supporting cast the includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brie Larson, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyle Chandler, the film tells the story of Sutter Keely, a charming and popular high school senior who unexpectedly falls for the mild-mannered "good girl" Aimee Finecky. But their young relationship will be tested by Sutter's personal demons and the realities of  impending adulthood. In this exclusive clip from a featurette on the forthcoming DVD, Ponsoldt explains why it was important to shoot the story (and the movie is shot beautifully) in widescreen.

So, what about that DVD? Would you like a copy? Well, be sure to email us your name and address, and tell us which "Breaking Bad" star appears in the clip below.

"The Spectacular Now" hits DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, January 14th.

Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.
