Starring: Hailee Steinfeld, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner
Perennial outsider Nadine Franklin (Hailee Steinfeld) has had enough. She hits up her history teacher (Woody Harrelson) at recess and declares that she’s going to end her life. How did she reach such despair? Well, it all started with her first friendship in primary school, bonding over a fuzzy caterpillar with her bestie-ever-since, Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). Now 17, Nadine groggily stirs after a drunken evening to find Krista curled up with her brother Darian (Blake Jenner). He’s the anti-Nadine, having always been the super-popular kid. Cue a whirlwind of teen politics from crushes to ill-advised texts and beyond… Growing up isn’t the perennial party that’s so often portrayed. It’s hard, and The Edge of Seventeen depicts this brilliantly, in what is one of the best bittersweet teen dramedies since the genre’s glory days of Molly Ringwald and John Hughes.
