The film has a zingy script and fantastic performances from all of the acting talent involved. Still only 19, Steinfeld is now building on the promise of her Oscar-nominated turn in 'True Grit.' It's exciting to discover a fresh female voice in film.

The Edge of Seventeen, as much as it wants to, just doesn't pack the punch of its predecessors.
