Synopsis [Steinfeld is] wonderfully irritable here as she simmers and seethes about her outcast status. Her performance and Craig’s writing both highlight the self-loathing barely obscured by Nadine’s cutting remarks...[G]raced by a superb star turn from Hailee Steinfeld, THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN is the rare coming-of-age picture that feels less like a retread than a renewal. It’s a disarmingly smart, funny and thoughtful piece of work, from end to beginning to end.3.5 stars out of 4 -- THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN is a delight, with Hailee Steinfeld serving as the radiant star at its center....Steinfeld further reveals her versatility as a whip-smart yet socially moronic teenager named Nadine.[A] smart, achingly bittersweet comedy....It can hold its own against THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, CLUELESS and other movies that have raised the bar on teenage movies.3.5 stars out of 4 -- You realize that the movie is not just a superior model of teen comedy; it may, in fact, be the equal of those beloved Eighties touchstones.Fremon Craig’s script is smart and sensitive....SEVENTEEN gets that being young can feel like THE HUNGER GAMES without the prizes; at least there’s always hope -- and graduation -- on the other side. -- Grade: B+[A] story of young adulthood that isn’t afraid to be abrasive and emotionally confusing, while also making space for rare instances of vulnerability and tenderness.Steinfeld gives an absorbing, sympathetically bristly performance as a girl whose formidable teenage troubles reach critical mass when her lifelong best friend starts dating her brother.Snarky and sensitive in just the right measure, what initially looks like a glib exercise in adolescent mortification has the nerve to dig a little deeper. And it winds up mining a little bit of wisdom and compassion in the process.Steinfeld is outstanding....Steinfeld makes her suffering real -- and the slivers of hope that show up in her life from time to time believable, too.A precocious, narcissistic high schooler named Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) is horrified when her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson) starts dating her impossibly perfect brother (Blake Jenner). Soon, she falls into a downward spiral that forces her to reflect on her cruel, self-centered behavior. Kyra Sedgwick and Woody Harrelson co-star. Written and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig.
