Review: "The Edge of Seventeen"

byChris Feil

You may have already been reading plentiful superlatives thrown at the new teen comedyThe Edge of Seventeenstarring Hailee Steinfeld.Perhaps a lot of that love comes from its refreshing lack of condescension or cynicism -Seventeendefinitely comes with its share of authenticity.The film is actually a (mostly) good time,thanks to Steinfeld delivering what feels like a second breakthrough after her Oscar-nominated debut in The Coen Brothers' True Grit.

Thoughts I Had While Staring at The Edge of Seventeen Poster

Manuelhere.How do we feel about Hailee Steinfeld?I have never seen her Oscar nominated turn inTrue Gritso I'm obviously at a disadvantage in discussing her career but really enjoyed her inPitch Perfect 2,The HomesmanandBegin Again.I may give the Coens film a chance but if the upcomingThe Edge of Seventeenis my first chance to see Steinfeld carry a movie,I think I'll be okay.

Kelly Fremon (who wrote theRory GilmoreAlexis Bledel picPost Grad) wrote and directed the teen flick and it may very well be this year'sPerks of Being a Wallflower.We finally got a chance to see a poster and a trailer so check out unfiltered thoughts after the jump...

Oscar Season Cometh.And Other Links

Voxhas an article on how binge-watching is changing television -- and not just on Netflix.Some interesting thoughts if too repetitive
VarietyLupita Nyong'o headed for an Off Broadway play called "Eclipsed"- I'm still stunned and disappointed that her film docket isn't full through 2018.Hollywood is so f***ed up.
Vultureit's somehow fitting that the news that Tom Holland has already shot his first Spider-Man appearance inCaptain America: Civil Warbroke in an interview about Chris Hemsworth's huge prosthetic penis inVacation.The world is a horny voyeur for all of Marvel Studios's masturbatory impulses


/Filmoh noooo aRobin Hoodorigin story in the works?I hate origin stories so much.Hate them hate them.When will our global obsession with "origins"of characters we already know end?Just tell a story about them!
Broadway BlogBent,the powerful play about gay men in the Holocaust is getting its first major revival in some time.Plays through August in LA.Go and report back!Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters is even in it!Anyone remember the film version with Clive Owen?
Varietyfinally Ryan Kwanten books another series (I was wondering why he wasn't highly in-demand postTrue Blood).He'll play one of two leads in Amazon's new Western seriesEdge.I forsee a problem: People in westerns tend to keep their clothes on.
/FilmBoth of David Fincher's "straight to series"shows for HBO are apparently in trouble
The Guardiancelebrates Jeremy Renner's five best performances.Well someone had too...he may be infinitely more famous now but his respectability as an actor seems to have taken a serious plunge once he attemptedfourdifferent franchises leaving tough drama far behind
Kenneth in the (212)rewatches the great LGBT flick Edge of Seventeen,which relates to a recent study on sexuality and friendshipe

"Ram's Horn"by Jenna Hamzawi
TOH!reports that Cary Fukunaga'sBeasts of No Nationis getting a short theatrical release after all,presumably for Oscar play.Which is too bad for me because only heavy Oscar talk could convince me to sit through something this unpleasant/brutal.Here's the teaser


Awards DailyTruth,the true story about Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) and Dan Rather (Robert Redford) and a story about George W Bush that nearly ended their careers,arrives in October.(I'm actually a bit surprised by this announcement since Cate already has a leading role in the mix this year.) Speaking of release dates...
David Polandresets the field with departures and arrivals.This is the part that interested me most on account of 'you never know'.Some movies always get pushed back and losing two or three of these would be impactful to say the least in the communal speculation.

My best guess,based on past histories of the directors and companies and/or absence of promo materials is that 2015 loses three of these four:Silence,Concussion,Snowden,andI Saw the Light.
