New Red Band Trailer for Coming-of-Age Comedy 'Edge of Seventeen'
"Why are you so awkward?!" STX has released a new red band trailer for the coming-of-age comedy The Edge of Seventeen, starring Hailee Steinfeld as a high school teen dealing with all the usual problems related to sex and boys and friends in high school. Here's the good news - I had a chance to see this recently, and it's the best damn coming-of-age comedy I've seen in a while. Seriously. It's smarter than most other movies, brutally honest but so fun, and fearlessly R-rated meaning they don't hold back on language. The cast includes Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner and Hayden Szeto. This is one of the few Hollywood comedies this year that I recommend seeing, it's worth your time.
Here's the second 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?
