Film Review: The Edge of Seventeen

Abby Wormsbaker, Staff Writer

The Edge of Seventeen is a film about a teenager named Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) who is seen as what most teenagers are portrayed as. The film begins with a back story of her growing up, meeting her best friend, all the way up to the current day where she is now in high school. As the film goes on a conflict unveils between her and her best friend and her family, she makes a fool of herself to the boy she likes, and she deals with day-in-day problems that many go through.

The story of The Edge of Seventeen is very real, emotional and very honest. It contains the emotions people go through around this age, the hard challenges and even the good.

This comedic and heartfelt film is what every teenager needs to see. It has very good cinematography, a great movie soundtrack and a extremely talented cast. Highly recommend.
