“The Edge of Seventeen” is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of “Sixteen Candles” and “The Breakfast Club” – an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman in today’s modern world. High school junior Nadine (Steinfeld) is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother, Darian (Jenner), starts dating her best friend, Krista (Richardson).
Join Steinfeld, Jenner, Haley Lu Richardson, Hayden Szeto, James L. Brooks and director Kelly Fremon Craig when they visit to discuss the film. Interview at AOL HQ in NYC for BUILD Series.
The YH Studio welcomes the talented young cast from the coming-of-age film ‘The Edge of Seventeen’, including Hailee Steinfeld, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner, and Hayden Szeto! The foursome talks high school crushes, awkward first dates, and bro-hugs, plus we play a round of the Telephone Game!
Let’s all take a moment to remember when we were 17. For some of you, maybe that was just last year, and for others maybe it was a ~lifetime~ ago. Either way, most of us have grown since then –and more importantly, we’ve learned.
FORA recently had the chance to sit down with Haley Lu Richardson who stars in the upcoming film The Edge of Seventeen alongside Hailee Steinfeld. Haley plays the role of Krista, who (at seventeen) starts to date the brother of her best friend, Nadine. This coming of age film depicts the hardships of high school, siblings, friendships and growing up in general as a pimply 17-year old girl.
So, what were you like at 17? It can be cringe-worthy to look back, which is why we forced Haley to do it for us. Watch below as she answers a few questions as if she were her 17-year old self again.
Haley Lu attended the premiere of The Edge of Seventeen in Los Angeles on november 9, 2016. Pictures have been added to the gallery
