THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (2017): Good, Harrelson Was Fun…

Starring Woody Harrelson, Hailee Steinfeld, Blake Jenner and Kyra Sedgwick, director Kelly Fremon Craig’s movie, The Edge Of Seventeen features good performances from the entire cast.

Steinfeld whose great work in True Grit (2010) will probably always be my favourite of her roles did a good job of playing a high school student. One whose life becomes even more challenging than it already was now that her brother and best friend have started dating.

What’s useful to note is that this tale of a high school student finally growing up is more a drama than it is comedy. As such, definitely don’t expect to laugh too much. What you probably can expect is for a thought similar to the following to enter your mind: ’Parenting is hard, adolescence is hard, relationships, friendships and siblinghood are hard; especially when you get a massive wrench in the works that is your life and your main support is absent.’

I enjoyed Harrelson and Sedgwick’s performances the most. Harrelson for the humour and Sedgwick for her portrayal of a struggling mother of two teenage children.

By the end, even though my teenage years weren’t the worst, I was left feeling rather grateful that my those years are well and truly behind me. In truth, of course, every decade of life is challenging; except that with time, we hopefully should be getting better and wiser so we hurt people less.

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (2016): New Trailer From Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson

Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson star in The Edge of Seventeen, a  promising new high school comedy…

I’m sure the teen angst stuff will be interesting. However it’s another serving of the promise I saw in Hailee Steinfeld’s performance in True Grit (2010) that’ll get me to watch. That combined with Harrelson’s teacher character because he reminds me of another fun high school teacher role played by Jermaine Clement in People Places Things (2015).

Written and directed by Kelly Fremon; Kyra Sedgwick, Blake Jenner and Laine MacNeil also star.

The Edge Of Seventeen Release dates: September 30th, 2016 (US)…
