Hailee Steinfeld in Red Band Trailer for Comedy 'The Edge of Seventeen'
"Life's about taking risks, don't be afraid to put yourself out there." STX Entertainment has debuted the first red band trailer for Kelly Fremon's The Edge of Seventeen, a new coming-of-age comedy starring Hailee Steinfeld that is in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. This film seems different than most teen comedies nowadays, described as an "honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman in today’s modern world." The full cast includes Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner, Hayden Szeto. I'm impressed they started out with a red band trailer, but it's not too raunchy. This has some amusing moments but it mostly looks like good fun.
Here's the first red band trailer for Kelly Fremon's The Edge of Seventeen, direct from YouTube:
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all. The Edge of Seventeen is both written & directed by first-time filmmaker Kelly Fremon, making her big debut with this film. It's produced by fellow filmmaker James L. Brooks. STX will release The Edge of Seventeen in theaters starting November 18th this fall. Interested?
