The Edge of Seventeen came out in 2016 and is about a sad and angry teen girl named Nadine dealing with her father’s death. Hailee Steinfeld played the lead role. Unfortunately, her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) is in love with Nadine’s brother, making things even worse.
This movie is very popular because it gives a new twist to the classic story of teen angst and shows that growing up is hard for everyone. There are a lot of other good movies in the same style. Here are some movies that everyone should watch if they like The Edge of Seventeen.
The cinematic version of Becky Albertalli’s young adult book Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda stars Nick Robinson as Simon, a homosexual teenager disguising his sexuality from his friends and family.
His penfriend, “Blue,” lets him be himself and express what he wants. This movie is great for lovers of The Edge of Seventeen since Simon and Nadine are misunderstood. Both cynical and clever, they’d be terrific companions.
Paper Towns is another YA film. Jake Schreier’s film is based on John Green’s 2008 novel, The Fault in Our Stars.
Cara Delevingne’s Margo vanishes, leaving Nat Wolff’s Q to investigate the mystery. But unfortunately, Q isn’t a regular adolescent like Nadine. Nadine understands she’s been a jerk and should accept Krista and her brother’s relationship, and Q must move on from Margo to maturity.
The First time
People who liked The Edge Of Seventeen will also like the 2012 movie The First Time. The best thing about this movie is that the characters talk and act like real teenagers, showing a lot of emotion and vulnerability as the story goes on.
Dave Hodgman (Dylan O’Brien) and Aubrey Miller (Britt Robertson) start talking at a party, and the movie is about how they interact over the next few days. It’s a sweet movie with a tone like The Edge of Seventeen.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is another great teen movie. It was a very popular Netflix movie, and for a good reason: the movie based on Jenny Han’s book is sweet.
Like The Edge of Seventeen, this movie shows that high school is hard for almost every student and that there are so many ways to be embarrassed. Nadine says and does awkward things, like admitting who she has a crush on or acting like a child, and Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) is embarrassed when her letters to her crushes are sent to them.
Everything recounts Maddy’s narrative, adapted from Nicola Yoon’s YA novel (Amandla Stenberg). Due to SCID, she can’t go outdoors. However, she’s captivated by Olly (Love, Simon’s Nick Robinson), who lives nearby. While Nadine is well and can go outdoors, she feels set in her habits and isn’t open to new people or chances.
The Art Of Getting By
The 2011 movie The Art of Getting By is a calm, quiet movie that reminds me of The Edge of Seventeen.
Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore play two teens, Sally Howe and George Zinavoy, who meet and get along well. However, George hates going to school and has a hard time putting in any effort. Both Nadine and Sally seem to have lost confidence and have trouble being happy. Before, Homework was the name of The Art of Getting By.
Some Kind of Wonderful, a 1987 movie written and directed by John Hughes, doesn’t get as much attention as Pretty in Pink or The Breakfast Club, but it’s just as good.
Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson), her best friend, Keith Nelson (Eric Stoltz), and rich girl Amanda Jones (Lea Thompson) are at the centre of a love triangle in the movie. Watts likes Keith, so it’s hard for him to like Amanda. In The Edge of Seventeen, Nadine, Krista, and Nadine’s brother are all in a love triangle, so these two movies have a similar feel.
Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson, played by Saoirse Ronan, seems like Nadine’s cynical and tough older sister. They could easily be in the same movie, so fans of The Edge of Seventeen should also check out the 2017 movie Lady Bird.
Both Lady Bird and Nadine no longer think that they can have fun in high school or that their friends or families will understand them. And both movies are smart and hysterically funny.
Someone Great is lauded since it focuses on friendship rather than love. Jenny Young (Gina Rodriguez) is single and moving to San Francisco to work for Rolling Stone. She’s a music journalist, so this is enormous. Someone Great and The Edge Of Seventeen both show how important friends are. Jenny appreciates Krista from the start of the film, but Nadine doesn’t.
Clueless is a classic that inspired many modern adolescent flicks. The Edge Of Seventeen lovers will like this flick. Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) has to get over herself, so she may be happy, just like Nadine does.
