High-school life gets even more unbearable for Nadine when her best friend, Krista, starts dating her older brother. —IMDB

Didn’t quite live up to my expectations. But it’s still a very good coming-of-age story — one of the best I’ve seen for a while. The acting from the young cast is very good. Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Nadine, is outstanding and Woody Harrelson is excellent as the teacher. There are some great lines in the movie and, overall, the script is wickedly funny. You can feel the complexity of a teenager trying to make sense of their life when they feel so different to everybody else around them.
