The Edge of Seventeen

Comedy Drama


 

Nadine is not enjoying adolescence all that much and things only get worse when her brother starts dating her best friend.

This is an edgy coming of age movie, the central character is awkward with a peculiarly teenage type of belligerence. Smart, sharp dialogue and quirky humour keep angst levels down to the realm of entertaining. You'll be glad those tormented growing years are behind you while being disarmed by this version of that experience. "The Edge of Seventeen" is cleverly crafted to allow audiences access to an emotional intimacy with the players on screen. Seventeen going on seventeen.
