One of the brightest coming-of-age films of recent vintage.

Lively, upbeat, and, most importantly, fresh.

A classic of the teen movie genre.

Funny, heartbreaking and melancholic, sometimes all at once.

This isn't a period piece. It's merely a universally relatable story of a girl who doesn't fit in to begin with falling out with her only real friend and going into a tailspin.

Arguably one of the best coming-of-age high school comedies in recent years...

Steinfeld here proves that the 2010 Oscar nomination was no fluke.

The timeless, location-neutral The Edge of Seventeen is a movie so flimsy that it seems to have been primarily conceived of and developed as a vehicle for the amusing Steinfeld...

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 is a funny and moving coming-of-age dramedy. It takes the spirits of what made John Hughes' films speak to the teenagers of their time and translates them for the modern high schooler.

With all the high-school drama aside, Nadine's one-to-ones with her teacher are either extremely awkward or heartwarming, and that's just what the story needed - a break and fresh viewpoint on Nadine's life.

The Edge of Seventeen promises to become, for many, a new favorite film.

The Edge of Seventeen manages to artfully dodge any staleness by virtue of a great script and the universally excellent performances all round...

The world is full of beautiful, complex humans. Sometimes it just takes a bit of growing up to notice them.

Though The Edge of Seventeen centers on Nadine...it is the supporting cast surrounding Steinfeld that makes Edge such a pleasurable experience.

It has a sharp and smart script, which plays with the genre's archetypes in order to develop unique situations. [Full review in Spanish]

The Edge of Seventeen is the rare coming of age comedy that immediately took me in with its smart writing and relatable characters.

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

Steinfeld portrays Nadine in such a way that you can't help but relate to her insecurities. A dry and witty supporting turn from Harrelson is the cherry on top of the cake for this surprising gem of a film...
