We recently viewed the amazing movie, “The Edge of Seventeen”, written and directed by
Kelly Fremon Craig, in her directing debut. In fact, the Las Vegas Film Critics Society nominated her for Breakout Filmmaker of the Year!
Labeled as this generation’s Breakfast Club, I compare it more to Pretty in Pink, as it’s more of a female version of a male coming of age film. It stars Hailee Steinfeld, in what will be her defining role (forget about True Grit!). Also, Woody Harrelson gives another of his incredible performances. I will never be able to get over how he was “Woody” on Cheers, and has now become one of the most underrated actors of all time.
This film is absolutely 100% a Grade A, 5 star movie. This is why we watch movies!
See it today on Amazon!
