Being a teenager sucks. But movies about teenagers can be a fun trip back in time; all of the hilarity, but no of the personal embarrassment. In that vein, I’ve got passes for The Edge of Seventeen! Synopsis!
THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of SIXTEEN CANDLES and THE BREAKFAST CLUB – an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman in today’s modern world.
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.
The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.
