Hailee Steinfeld’s ‘The Edge of Seventeen’ Is a Must See

So the critics are saying.



Hailee Steinfeld’s new movie “The Edge of Seventeen” is a big hit with the critics. The movie review site Rotten Tomatoes has given it a rating of 92%.

Ever since her breakout role in the Coen Brothers’ remake of True Grit, Hailee, whose paternal grandfather was Jewish, has been looking for the movie which would make her a star. “The Edge of Seventeen” just might be it.

In the movie, Hailee Steinfeld plays Nadine, a high school kid whose life turns upside down when her best friend starts dating her older brother.


The New York Daily News says, “Steinfeld is brilliantly able to weave together a character who’s both typical and yet surprising in her multidimensional emotions that Nadine slowly works through. She’s not a cookie-cutter character.” And, “The struggles of being a kid are beautifully depicted in the film.”


Variety says, “In the savviest teen comedy in years, Hailee Steinfeld gives a star performance as a beguiling but troubled high schooler who uses her ferocious cleverness to act out her distress.”


Hailee Steinfeld is only 20 years old, but she already has more than 20 film credits under her belt. “The Edge of Seventeen” could make her the next big teen idol.
