An official red band trailer for the coming-of-age film The Edge Of Seventeen has been released, starring Hailee Steinfeld, Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick.
The Edge of Seventeen is a candid look into what it’s like growing up as a teenage girl in today’s world.
The film looks like it takes a grounded approach to the theme, but also like it doesn’t take itself too seriously as you’ll see in the trailer.
Coming-of-age films are always a good watch when done correctly, like with the recent Linklater film Everybody Wants Some!! (my review here).
While this film doesn’t appear to be as absurd as that one, the trailer made me laugh so there’s sure to be a humorous element to it.
The Edge of Seventeen is directed by Kelly Fremon who makes her directorial debut and is produced by Academy Award winner James L. Brooks, who’s brought us several character-driven classics such as Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, Big, Say Anything, The Simpsons, Jerry Maguire and As Good as It Gets.
The Edge of Seventeen is in cinemas on September 29, 2016.
