The film about a hard partying teenage boy who meets an unusual "nice girl" has done a solid $5.7 million domestically.
"We are delighted and honored to work on the French release of The Spectacular Now, a wonderful and sensible movie that begins like a typical teen romcom only to catch us by surprise and evolve into this brilliant and heartfelt growing up experience. We are confident that not only French young moviegoers but also a more mature audience will relate to the exceptional acting performance of Shailene and Miles and to the expertise and grace of director James Ponsoldt," said Lacombe.
