About the Movie
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).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Craig and her actors, all of them wonderful, have freshened up the genre: As familiar as the basic story may be, it also hits some raw, nuanced notes.
Fresh: The wisest and smartest teen comedy in years.
Fresh: That weird, messy puzzle of trauma and affection where our high school memories reside is what powers The Edge of Seventeen.
Fresh: I can't pretend to relate to the troubles of a teenage girl in today's society but The Edge of Seventeen comes across as realistic and authentic.
Definitely one of the best of 2016
Best Performance of 2016
She should have won Oscar.
Funny, funny, funny! Fun movie!
You can't say that about coming of age movies! Belongs up there with "Juno" and "Easy A"
