The Edge of Seventeen ★★★½

The moment I saw this trailer, I just knew in my heart I would love this movie. Well, I don't, which really bums me out. 

Great performances. I've never been a teenage girl, but from what I hear, this accurately portrays what it is like for many. 

Maybe it was the point, but I had a really hard time liking Nadine, which is a huge personal pet peeve of mine. 

I was also hoping the film would be funnier. 

It's a well made, well crafted film. I fear my expectations were too high.
