Fun Fact: Shailene Woodley tells Miles Teller early in the film that she believes people are "more than one thing" - the year later she proved she was when she was revealed to be Divergent! Oh, and Teller co-starred with her in that film too.

Both are terrific in this film. Teller is one of the finest young actors working in Hollywood today. Better than usual teen romance.

Finally a good teen movie.

I feel like I watched this at the wrong time in the wrong moment with the wrong attitude. Obviously, this isn't your everyday typical romantic comedy. On the contrary, it's unique in every way, hyper-realistic and above all, it features one of my favorite actors Miles Teller! But still, I don't think I've understood this movie, hence why I gave it a 6.
