To see this movie at me was two reasons: this Shailene Woodley I liked the description of the film. Although the annotation to the movie, incidentally, is not quite true, as for me.

Sutter was just a fun guy, who seems not stupid, but it creates the impression, because he kept drinking, not appreciate their work and people who are close with him. Its called a joke, but not so, it just live, as he wants. Living in the moment and not think about the future. And why? Growing up — not great. In the adult world, there anything good, but keep live it can't.

And all changes the appearance of Aimee. She does not consider herself a beauty, though, and attractive. She enjoys reading, draws well and wants to do in College. Knows what he wants from her future marriage. The complete opposite of Sutter. And the contrary, as a rule, are attracted.

I still believe that person is more than one (C) Aimee.

But the film nor the friendship or about the love of a boy and girl. He about life. About growing up. It that like you wanted to become an adult, to go further in the future, no matter how it's scary no.

I understand the main character, he scary, because it used to live as used to. I were too scared to finish school and go to the Institute. But sooner or later you realize we need to go further. You understand that when you get older. How sad to realize everyone is growing up. But not too bad?

I loved the story of the parents of Sutter and Aimee, I think if they met, they would continued to live as live, so they life has changed. Sutter had matured the whole father thanks Aimee.

Miles teller I liked in the film "21 and more", it a cute, charming, albeit not handsome, any full. Yes it is not need. He captivating, fall in love with yourself. I would like to see him even more serious roles.

Shailene Woodley. I love her. True. She cute, even when not painted. And very very beautiful. And I think plays well. I wait it film the book I like "the Fault in our stars" and know I think she can handle it. Moreover, I think it is a stunning hazel.

I also like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and look and as an actress, but unfortunately it here was little.

Film me I for some reason I thought that there will be a story of love and no more. And very glad it was not so. I would advise you to look at.

It's good to "live in the present moment", but the best part about now is that it should one tomorrow. And I'll start the count. Sincerely, Sutter Keely. (C)

synopsis this film sounds like another teenage romance with a classic storyline, a La a walk to remember:a popular high school hunk falls in love with a little proper girl. Then what are also interested in Sundance in this picture as a special prize was given this picture?This interest, and partly, nostalgia, and spodvignulo me to see and re sure that the synopses are often blatantly lying.

So on nostalgiawhile I have your attention. Periodically, I so subjected to this called nostalgia for the old life. I just six months ago I graduated, so that fresh memories and, of course, I I totally miss these people(my 10-11 occurred in the best years — friendly class, high school — a real family). I remember very well how can't even think about the future. This would seem a logical step, as to finish school, enroll in University, find a husband and etc. scared of death. I didn't want to cross that line, I didn't understand why I should then clearly aware that do with their lives. Growing up I also not want that the wing the parents convenient heat and I, the city flower, not geared to life. All this I remember, and therefore I understand the main character Sutter:he's afraid of pateren that his favorite "real" threatens to be broken uncertain and frightening futures. As a result, he makes an error for the error, such as those that badly strong the cobbler, when a girl, which he likes wants to pull somewhere in it repels her.

Yes, I am not know anyone would not afraid to this way of life. Any passes that adaptation. And when it seems that life begins than last (this is all because of these transitional ceremonies that create the illusion of something Grand and geneeskundige), it just a continuation of the old. Those friends who were your friends, they remain no matter where and as you years and those were not, go to the pleasant memories of school everything was the past.

Synopsis how it's written about something else. The first thing that catches eyes — identity, Sutter. He not so popular (maybe his former was popular, but not him itself to himself) and best friend it from those small, who for the whole school nor who met did not go to cool bands. And he not exactly handsome in the classic sense of teenage movie. Yes in any sense. He just a "jester" class, each class has one. This guy who will laugh at any and all of its charisma leaves on it. And the film is not about how he fell in love with good about a girl and she cheated on him. In part, perhaps Yes, because true love tend to change anyone, but the theme of the film as times reflected in the title "an Exciting time". It is the time you "never budeschem younger than now", it is the time when you live in the moment when you fall in love, commit reckless acts, then the time then I remember the whole life. It seems so short and how to claim adults (I do myself to him attribute), not returns ago. About the same a movie.

Important line the father of Sutter. It is an alcoholic, loser, egomaniac, which is not can to be faithful nor the wife, not the son. He no matter what will his family. He  is"living the moment". It so calls. So it throws wife, children, and 18 years to it comes to his son his girlfriend and he again leaves it. When Sutter is faced with that he clearly understands how at the genetic level, he looked like his father and its example, see where it moves. As it sobers the fellow! By the way, my opinion, cut the frequent repetition of such details as a flask. The characters are constantly drinking. It appears that they fell in a condition of alcoholic intoxication. And "correct" his girlfriend, Amy, was not against it. Knowing relationships Director James Ponsoldt to the theme of alcoholism (indie movie "In the trash"), you can understand where this detail, in this context, she seemed inappropriate.

Speaking of the actor's work, to allocate no I would like, because virtually all more play on level, but to win — not like this happened. However, to assess the work done.

miles teller I hardly, but remember: it is he played no main, but an important role in "Rabbit hole" with Nicole Kidman. As far as I know, this guy is up to that played in mostly youth comedies like "Bachelor party in Vegas" (except "Hole"), and therefore, I can only praise for such a good dramatic role.

Shailene Woodley generally see for the first time, but I want to thank her, because thanks to her fans of the film translated into Russian language (no one else take care). This sweet girl, as expected to play in another teen hit the Fault in our stars, and this book, despite the hackneyed plot (teenagers in love and cancer) umudryalsya become the bestselling New York Times. What can I say about the role of Woodley here. Well done. Although my house the heroine is naive and not like the clever reading woman (reading comic books on the starry galaxies). She good responsive, but nothing more. All very interesting. for "courage" to appear without cosmetics, and I see anything like that. Such a character — the girl next door. Generally a couple of the most common (even for looks) and this gives the movie vitality, it is easier to believe in history.

brie Larson, who played ex-girlfriend of the main character, familiar to me very well series "United States of Tara". There she was my favorite, but it hardly away from the image. An ordinary girl who early realizes that it attracts stability. I think it not looking for love.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the role of sister main character too well for izvesna tricholoma "Scott Piligrim against all". Here it is a little, but this is enough to perfectly reveal her character.

After last year's exciting "it's Good to be a wallflower", America gave again good film about growing up, that marked good tradition. Just remember a lot of American youth films of the 80s, which to still in there for the seas, the oceans are reviewed and this day. Personally, for me "an Exciting time" has become something of a kind of nostalgia, but still problems of the characters are close and me, I haven't have grown from them. Imagine how would be useful to see the film for those who that's it graduates, because largely calm "rebellious soul" and prove future — not a terrible word, and just what follows real, logical time in the root of nothing is changing. No sense to live under motto ‘Live fast. Die young’, although it sounds insanely attractive.

Honestly, if I know name of the Director, I would've thought I made this film, Richard Linklater.

This movie is a clear emphasis on realism, acting and improvisation.

So many moments captured with one camera in one take, long 3-4 minutes. So that no precleanse dialogues to scenario't be here can a miles teller and Shailene Woodley — in some ways, Ethan hawke and Julie Delpy of"Before Sunrise" in adolescence, even dialogue, of course, not are profound.

This is the main feature of the film. After all, rarely expect from the teenage drum improvisation of the actors, and in "Exciting Time" for this constructed.

The story itself, though, and not perfect, but so in or otherwise, makes you wonder what it was put on the first place: today or tomorrow.
