Being a teenager sucked. Immensely. Intensely. Every damn day. Yet, few movies about this terrible time dare to recognize what a catastrophe coming of age feels like. Enter The Edge of Seventeen.

Written and directed by Kelly Fremon, The Edge of Seventeen stars Hailee Steinfeld as Nadine, a chronically uncool high schooler whose special hell is that her studly jock brother has fallen for her only friend. Hand jobs, embarrassing sexts, cringe-inducing haircuts, and Woody Harrelson as the worst mentor a girl could ask for all factor into this promising—but NSFW—red-band trailer:

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 Edge of Seventeen opens September 30, 2016.
