First UK trailer for Edge of Seventeen released
Edge of Seventeen certainly seems to be getting a warm reception, both at Toronto International Film Festival where it debuted and also in the wider critical community. The film is helmed by first time director Kelly Fremon Craig and stars Hailee Steinfeld (Pitch Perfect 2, True Grit) and Woody Harrelson (True Detective, The Hunger Games).
Edge of Seventeen arrives in UK cinemas on 30th November.
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson)
All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.
The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.
