Winner of the Palme d'Or and at the Oscars.

    Ditched by his girlfriend, a popular, perpetually drunk 18-year-old (Miles Teller) falls for a funny, nerdy and introverted classmate (Shailene Woodley) who get into a toxic co-dependent relationship that serves as a raw and honest portrayal of teen romance, a rare thing on-screen.
