Movie Review: THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN does for this generation what John Hughes’ movies did for the ‘80s and what “She’s All That” did for the ‘90s

RAMA comes through with another great review.


THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN does for this generation what John Hughes’ movies did for the ‘80s and what “She’s All That” did for the ‘90s. This movie is so funny, you may end up rolling on the floor literally. Hailee Steinfeld nails those awkward teenage years spot on. And so clear your plans this weekend to make room for THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN marks the feature directorial debut of writer/director Kelly Fremon Craig who superbly wrote this wonderful hilarious coming-of-age story that’s candid and unadulterated. Hailee Steinfeld plays high school junior named Nadine who’s already having a hard time with awkwardness and fitting in but things get even tougher when her best friend, Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) starts dating her older brother, Darian (Blake Jenner). Feeling more alone than ever, Nadine finds new friendship in Hayden Szeto’s character, Erwin, a thoughtful student who turns out has had a crush on Nadine for quite some time.

I knew this movie had something special when I heard that the legendary producer James L. Brooks (“Terms of an Endearment,” “As Good As It Gets”) was involved. Whenever Brooks believes in a project, then that deserves my attention because Brooks knows funny and Craig’s script is all that and a bag of flaming hot potato chips. THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN gives you an honest look at what teenagers in the suburbs deal with these days. And much of it is thanks to Hailee Steinfeld’s performance that can’t get any more real and authentic. As Nadine, Steinfeld makes Malcolm In The Middle look twice as clueless.

You wouldn’t believe half the things that come out of all the characters’ mouths because the things they say are so blunt and so spontaneous and edgy and unapologetic, they’re like curve ball thrown at you. And Steinfeld is surrounded by equally appealing talents like Kyra Sedgwick, Blake Jenner, Haley Lu Richardson, Hayden Szeto, you can’t keep your eyes off of them. Not to mention Woody Harrelson in what I think his best role yet as the sarcastic teacher who reluctantly helps Nadine figure herself out. All of these actors completely understand their respective characters, they totally get who they are and so all Craig had to do is roll the cameras and just let them run with it. I guarantee you’ll feel grateful that you’ve watched THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN.

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
