Every teenager’s worst nightmare. See Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson in this new trailer for coming-of-age Dramedy THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN!
From producer James L. Brooks, and writer and first-time director Kelly Fremon Craig, comes a wry coming-of-age comedy with a refreshingly authentic voice. Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) and Krista are inseparable best friends attempting to navigate high school together…until Nadine discovers her older brother and Krista have been secretly dating behind her back. They soon realize that there is a fine line between best friends and worst enemies.
The cast of the film is rounded out with Kyra Sedgwick, who plays Nadine’s well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson, who plays Mr. Bruner,Nadine’s English teacher (and mentor) who is uncannily wise in the ways of girl-clashes.
