STX has released a new red band trailer for the coming-of-age comedy The Edge Of Seventeen from writer and first-time director Kelly Fremon Craig. The pic closed out this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, which Deadline’s Pete Hammond lauded as “one of the best movies in the entire line-up” of the fest. It will be released in theaters nationwide November 18.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld as Nadine, a high school junior who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.
The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.
