The Edge of Seventeen Description

In the vein of classic coming-of-age films like Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, The Edge of Seventeen is a poignant and hilarious look at what it's like to be a teenager today. Growing up is hard, and life is no easier for Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld, Pitch Perfect 2), who is already at peak awkwardness when her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson, Ravenswood) begins dating her all-star brother Darian (Blake Jenner, Glee). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever. With the help of her reluctant sounding-board (Woody Harrelson, True Detective), she soon discovers that what feels like the end of the world may just be the beginning of growing up. Also starring Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer), see the movie critics are calling "an instant high school movie classic" (Dave Ehrlich, IndieWire).

The Edge of Seventeen Movie Reviews

  • Incredible!! :)

    I’ve never written a review of anything before but I must say that this film is amazing! From the storyline, to the character development, to the shots and angles, it was incredible!! I’ve never related so much to a character (Nadine) ever before!! High school is a time of ups and downs and feeling like the world is shitting on you but then turning around and giving you a hug, and this film perfectly captures that. Definitely a must see for anyone who is in or has gone through their teen/young adult years :)
  • I LOVE THIS MOVIE

    This is the closest thing to a John Hughes masterpiece that my generation will get. Truly great, authentic movie about what it's like to be in high school now. Hilarious and real.
  • Irritating

    The main character in this movie is really unpleasant. It is like spending 90 minutes with my, now adult, sister when a teenager but only in her worst moments. This character is an unbearable selfish bore. It is kind of unbelievable to me how unlikeable she is until the very last moments of the movie. Completely self involved spoiled brat. Yuck.
  • Great Movie!

    This, to me, accurately depicts what many teenagers go through during their teenage years. While the main character may be female, many male teens experience some of the trauma Nadine faces as well. Anybody can relate to this in some way! The cast was excellent and this film definitely had its funny moments. I'd recommend this to anyone!
  • Great movie

    Could have been way funnier. Stopped short, but still worth a view.

    How can you call this a comedy?! How can you even give this a 95% rating on rotten tomatoes?!? All of this baffles me the whole movie I was sitting and waiting for something to happen ... a climax of some sort and it never came ... I want my time and money back 👎🏼
  • Sad and slow

    What a terrible movie. I can’t believe some people compare this to the films made by John Hughes in the 80’s. The only similarity between those movies and this one is that they both involve teenagers. Unlike Hughes’ movies, Nadine here is completely unsympathetic and her “redemption” at the end just rings hollow. Woody Harrelson is wasted as some sort of slacker history teacher who is supposed to be her sounding board. Kyra Sedgwick just comes across as whiny and annoying as her mom. Her brother and best friend, who hook up, are not believable as a couple and are completely one-dimensional characters simply there to provide a reason for Nadine to act even more unpleasant. Do yourself a favor and save almost two hours of your life and skip this movie.

    This movie means a lot to be just because of the fact that I 100% relate to it. It hit every point to my life. I thought it was an awesome film I greatly enjoyed it.

    Hailee Steinfeld plays an unsympathetic character and the movie is predictable.
  • Comedy? Meh

    Dunno why it's portrayed as a comedy. It's freaking boring and kinda sad. Pretty pathetic in my opinion.
