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...

The problem is I have no desire to spend 2 hours with a surly miserable 17 year old.

The Edge of Seventeen checks all the teen movie boxes, but does so in a fashion that feels fresh and engaging in a way that we haven't seen since the heyday of John Hughes.

What's so disarming about The Edge of Seventeen is how its superficiality lends itself to some particularly authentic moments.

The casting is so perfect, the situations so heartbreakingly real, that "The Edge of Seventeen" is destined to become one of those great movies about a teenager, not a teenage movie we tend to outgrow.

The Edge of Seventeen is the kind of modest, funny teen movie that we don't see enough of these days.

...it's a teen film which has come of age.

This is a smart film about teens that's aimed at teens, and it's is a throwback to some of the best of the genre released in the 1980s.

Insightful, thoroughly well-written, amazingly acted, deservedly touching and downright hilarious, The Edge of Seventeen needs to be seen if we want to get more movies of this quality within the well trodden genre.

A poignant and funny coming-of-age tale that encapsulates the angst, awkwardness, and frustration of trying to find yourself in the cruel world of high school.

"The Edge of Seventeen" is the most cringe-inducing parts of high school encapsulated in 98 minutes of runtime. Oh, and Woody Harrelson is in it!

You can't go wrong with Kyra Sedgwick and Woody Harrelson in the roles of the film's adults, but Hailee Steinfeld simply shines as Nadine Franklin, and ends up giving us one of the great teenage protagonists in film history.

Brings shining performances from everyone across the board especially Hailee Steinfeld and a brilliant breakthrough debut for writer/director Kelly Fremon Craig.

Comfortable with tackling both the comedy of clumsiness and heavier sequences of despair, Steinfeld handles the tricky breakdown of Nadine's sham persona - the real existential crisis she is going through - with real generosity and humour.
