Hey friends! I just watched Edge of Seventeen and wanted to do a review on it! This will be a less than formal review as it fits the theme of the movie.
Nadine is a typical Seventeen year old girl. She feels alone. Shes hormonal and all she wants is to feel loved and not alone. At 13 Nadine and her twin brother Darrian along with their mother are struck by tragedy when their father/husband dies suddenly. After that it seems Nadine, naturally becomes closed off and pessimistic about the world.
At 17 she is in love with a guy who has no idea who she is, her mother favors Darrian, her best friend begins a romantic relationship with Darrian, there is a guy who likes her, Erwin, she isnt interested and now her only friend is her History teacher… Things seem to begin to spiril for our heroine as a salacious text can get her into trouble.
I absolutely loved this movie. It was so honest and heartbreaking while being funny and quirky. Hailee Steinfeld plays Nadine and she made me remember what it was like to be 17 and think i was the only person in the world with problems and to have that empty ache in my heart of feeling like i was always alone. I really connected with Nadine emotionally. She made me laugh and cry and feel nostalgic about the shittiest age in my life!!
i highly recommend this movie. It will make you laugh and cry. It pulls at your heart, it makes you nostalgic and its just so good.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 a five star film!!!
