Hailee Steinfield is a gifted young actress. I mean, one of her first ever roles earned her an Academy Award nomination and she is only 19 (so now’s the right time for you to feel bad about your life.) Anyway, it’s not hard to feel a bit jealous when you see her, especially because she continues to perform in brilliant independent films and that continues with The Edge of Seventeen.
Also starring Blake Jenner and Haley Lu Richardson, The Edge of Seventeen revolves around an awkward teenager whose all-star brother starts dating her best friend. Feeling entirely alone, she finds unexpected friendship in the shape of a thoughtful boy who gives her hope that things aren’t that terrible.
Coming of age dramas can either be good or strained, but as many are calling this a John Hughes type comedy, it as a lot of hype!
THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN IS OUT LATER THIS YEAR!
