Nadine feels more alone than ever when her best friend Krista starts dating her older brother Darian. Struggling with the complexities of family, friendships, and unrequited love, Nadine forms an unlikely friendship with her history teacher, Mr. Bruner, who helps her realize that life is not as bad as it seems. The film captures the humor and heartache of teenage life, highlighting the awkward, painful, and often hilarious moments that define growing up.


STAFF REVIEW:

The Edge of Seventeen (2016) is a refreshing and honest portrayal of teenage life, brilliantly directed by Kelly Fremon Craig. The film's strength lies in its witty script and the standout performance by Hailee Steinfeld, who captures the essence of a teenager's emotional rollercoaster. Woody Harrelson, as Mr. Bruner, provides a perfect counterbalance with his dry humor and wisdom. The film's relatable characters and realistic dialogue make it a standout in the coming-of-age genre. With its blend of humor, heart, and genuine emotion, The Edge of Seventeen is both entertaining and deeply affecting.
