    The Edge of Seventeen

    ★★★

    Your predictable coming-of-age teenage angst film, but the strength of Hailee Steinfeld, Woody Harrelson, and Hayden Szeto as your on-the-surface typical Asian kid (which, as an Asian, I loved seeing played out differently) coupled with the dialogue and chemistry elevate this beyond that.
