I finally got around to watching this movie on Amazon the other day, and I am so glad I did.
This was the first movie I have seen in 2017 that I thought was worth seeing. I’m almost 17 so, even though I do not have too much in common with the protagonist, I could relate to the basic themes of the movie. It was about a quirky girl played by Hailee Steinfeld who lost her father when she was younger, and it delves into her relationship with her friends, her family, and her teacher. For some reason, I feel really drawn to Hailee Steinfeld, and I love her in every movie she’s in (except Pitch Perfect 2, that was just weird). I thought she did a fantastic job in The Edge of Seventeen, and I was thoroughly impressed.
The movie was realistic and funny with actually some really adorable outfits. Also, I loved the soundtrack. It included some great songs like Genghis Khan by Miike Snow, Somebody Else by The 1975, To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra, and Big Jet Plane by Angus and Julia Stone.
I would definitely recommend this movie, especially if you are a teenage girl. It gets so (intentionally) cringey at times that I had to cover my eyes with my hands because I couldn’t watch the main character Nadine self-destruct, but that’s like life.
