Synopsis

Two high school girls are best friends until one dates the other's older brother, who is totally his sister's nemesis.

Our Take

8.0
Alex

A wonderful, witty teen comedy—possibly the best the genre has known in a long time! In a powerhouse performance, Hailee Steinfeld plays Nadine, a high school junior at peak angst and awkwardness. Her roller coaster journey through family, friends, lovers, or lack thereof, gives her that all-too-common impression for people her age that life is unbearable. Things get more complicated when Nadine’s dad passes and her only friend hooks up with an unexpected person. Her temperament and humor will help her see past her demons to understand what’s important in life, putting you in privileged spectator mode to this highly smart and exciting coming-of-age story.

I loved this movie, and even though I’m a much older person, I connected with the main character completely!

This movie is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. It is aimed towards a younger audience, at least I think, but I love it & recommended it.
