Movie Review: Edge of Seventeen

From watching the film’s trailer, I’ve wanted so badly to see the movie. Aside from the fact that Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson were in it, the story line is very attractive because it tackles about ones character. Finally, I found the time to see it yesterday and I wasn’t disappointed. I know it was a teenage movie but it still teaches you a lot about people and why they act the way they do. 

Nadine has issues about herself that she needed to fully understand and acknowledge first before she was able to fix. She had her family and friends but she didn’t quite see those facts all because she’s blinded by her personal issues. I liked that the movie showed several factors that lead to how Nadine became as a kid and as a person; because that was the truth. People don’t just change because something happened; life is a series. Some things are connected in some ways, even in its downsides. 
I love movies that show a person’s growth, because we always want to grow. Even when we have already grown, especially when we’ve already grown. Don’t they say that when we’ve learned so much, that we crave for more? Which is the opposite of the more we think we know, the more we don’t in reality. I’m not trying to say I’ve learned so much about life already, I’m still so young. But, regardless of age, we all want to gain something that will feed our souls. Would you agree?
