The Edge Of Seventeen Review

Very Good

An unusually realistic teen movie, this drama gets deep under the skin of its characters, breathing new life into the genre. First-time director Kelly Fremon Craig (who previously wrote the rom-com Post Grad) has created an involving film about a teenaged girl who is easy to identify with. The script may try too hard to explain away all of her darker emotions, but it's sharp and entertaining.

Hailee Steinfeld stars as Nadine, a 17-year-old in Portland, Oregon. On the fringe of the popular kids at school, she feels like a loser who doesn't deserve to live. And she can't cope with the fact that her best pal Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) has fallen for her irritatingly popular big brother Darian (Blake Jenner). It certainly doesn't help that her mother Mona (Kyra Sedgwick) is an emotional wreck, or that Nadine is being pursued by the class nerd Erwin (Hayden Szeto), because she's much more interested in bad boy Nick (Alexander Calvert). In need of someone to talk to, she turns to her grouchy history teacher Mr Bruner (Woody Harrelson), who refuses to indulge in her angst. But he's also the only person who actually listens to her.

Steinfeld is terrific in the role, bringing an endearing raw authenticity to a character who isn't hugely likeable. As Nadine ruthlessly insults everyone around her, Steinfeld quietly reveals the sensitive soul inside, which adds a blast of complexity to her scenes with the superbly restrained Harrelson, Sedgwick and Jenner. All of these relationships are difficult and often startlingly realistic, as is the depiction of high school peer pressure. As Nadine's classmates, Richardson has a wonderfully twisty role as her childhood bestie who has apparently betrayed her trust, while Szeto steals his scenes as the hilariously awkward Erwin.

Hailee Steinfeld Saw Herself In The Edge Of Seventeen


Hailee Steinfeld

The trailers may make it look like another lively comedy, but Steinfeld says viewers are in for "an honest telling of being a teenager and growing up".

She says that reading the script was her first clue that this was going to be different. "I remember feeling like I've experienced so much of what this character has gone through, and in no way have ever been able to express it," she says. "It speaks to the idea of once you become one with yourself and who you are, nothing else really matters."

The Edge of Seventeen Trailer


Nadine is a junior in high school and she's never been the popular girl, she's quite, intelligent and an introvert and relies on her best friend, Krista, as the only source of company that she really enjoys - all this is in stark contrast to her elder brother, Darian who's one of the most popular kids in the school.

Even when Nadine was growing up, she never thought much to herself and let her become the school laughing stock; matters were not helped after making a few BIG style errors that left her looking a little too much like Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite. Since then, Nadine has grown out her short hair style and is somewhat more comfortable with herself.

Nadine's crush has just got out of Juvenile detention and to her, he's perfect and Nadine doesn't know is that Krista has a crush too, on none other than Nadine's brother Darian. This situation becomes all too apparent when Nadine finds Krista and Darian in bed together. Completely dumbfounded by the revelation, Nadine can't believe that her best friend has fallen for her brother, someone she sees as the total opposite of herself.

'Pitch Perfect 2' Star Rebel Wilson Reveals She Hates Karaoke


Rebel Wilson Anna Kendrick Hailee Steinfeld Brittany Snow

With Pitch Perfect 2 sitting pretty at the top of American box offices, one of its stars has revealed that she secretly dislikes singing in public and will only do so if she’s getting paid.

Rebel Wilson, who plays Patricia “Fat Amy” in the popular film franchise, told Glamour magazine in a new interview that although fans may assume that she enjoys singing because her character does so in the movie, in real life she hates it!

“A lot of people think - because we sing in the movie and whatever - that we would do karaoke, but I have a thing against karaoke,” she revealed. “The microphones are never good quality, they have always been dropped, and a lot or people are screaming into them and the vocal sound quality is never the right mix and I'm like, 'No!' I'll sing in a movie when I'm getting paid.”

Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar was not a combination we ever thought we'd see, but with their collaboration on 'Bad Blood' - alongside a host of other celebrities in the hotly anticipated video - seems this pop starlet is ever expanding her much-loved sound.

There might be a whole action movie vibe to the video, which opened at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards yesterday (May 17th 2015), but there's not much to it in terms of plot. It opens with Catastrophe (Taylor Swift) and Arsyn (Selena Gomez) seemingly working together to defeat a horde of masked assassins, before Arsyn - with her eyes on the prize - takes out Catastrophe too. Then she finds herself at Welvin Da Great's (Kendrick Lamar) headquarters being - for want of a better word - 'repaired' by The Trinity (Hailee Steinfeld x3) before rallying her army of scantily clad beauties to go against her newfound enemy.
