We're happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a free advance screening of teen comedy, The Edge of Seventeen, starring Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson.
SYNOPSIS: 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.
Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), 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.
The screening takes place on Monday, November 14th at 7:30pm at AMC Georgetown. If you'd like to attend, simply go to the STX ticketing site here and download one Admit-Two pass. Please remember that having passes does not guarantee entry. You'll need to arrive early to ensure receiving a seat. Enjoy the show!
The Edge of Seventeen opens November 18th.
