Synopsis

Nadine is a high-schooler like many others, struggling to cope with the societal pressures that teenage life has to offer. Her friendship group extends little further than long-time confidante Krista, but their relationship soon takes a drastic turn when Krista begins dating Nadine’s older brother, Darian. Despite the attentions of affable classmate Erwin and regular conversations with her sarcastic yet supportive teacher Mr. Bruner, Nadine’s world starts to spiral out of control. The Edge of Seventeen is an honest depiction of adolescence, often fun and full of dark humour, but also sensitively explores issues around mental health, including the isolation felt by its protagonist.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
