|The Edge of Seventeen – Trailer
The Edge of Seventeen is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Clubâ€”an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what itâ€™s like to grow up as a young woman in todayâ€™s modern world. Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine, who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian starts dating her best friend Krista. All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all. The Edge of Seventeen is produced by Academy Award winner James L. Brooksâ€”the filmmaker behind big-screen, character-driven classics such as Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, Big, Say Anything, The Simpsons, Jerry Maguire and As Good as It Gets.
