Quotes

[first lines]
Nadine: Look I don't wanna take up a ton of your time, but I'm gonna kill myself. I just thought someone should know. I don't really know how this works. I'm probably gonna jump off an overpass in front of a semi, so... Or U-Haul, maybe, just not a bus. I'm not gonna be a dick and make people watch, but it has to be big; it's gotta be so big that it just...

simple and pleasant
13 December 2016 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

The Edge of Seventeen directed by Kelly Fremon Craig is all about Hailee Stenfeld as Nadine, a 17 yr old girl who feels isolated from others in school because she is too matured for others and too focused on having no one on her side after her only friend , her best friend from early childhood ,Krista(played very well by Haley Lu Richardson)starts dating her good looking brother Darian( Blake Jenner , loved his character in Everybody wants some). Nadine lets out her anger and frustrations about life to her teacher, callous and calm Mr Bruner (Woody Harrelson). Mr Bruner is an excellent listener and understands the turmoil of a 17 yr old female who lost her father at a very young age and now has to cope with life's mole hill problems turned into mountains because of her anger and jealousies. Movie is very pleasant and Hailee Stenfeld has potential to do good roles. I enjoyed conversation between Krista and Nadine after Nadine sees Krista with her brother. And then conversations between Nadine and Mr Bruner about wanting to die. Haley Lu Richardson and Blake Jenner did well as a very nice calm and pleasant couple. Not Oscar worthy for Direction, script, editing but overall a pleasant 1hr44minutes movie.
