As you guys know, Hollywood execs have been trying real hard for years to give Hailee Steinfeld a proper launch pad to super stardom, but in recent years the 19-year-old actress has suffered a number of painful performances at the the box-office. Fortunately for Hailee, she’s still very young, so when you have the Hollywood bigwigs repeatedly betting on you, I think it’s only a matter of time until Hailee finds the right script.

As for Hailee’s latest project, “The Edge of Seventeen” is a new coming-of-age comedy co-starring Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson and Kyra Sedgwick. Here’s more info about the film:

The life of high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld) is already awkward when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). Nadine now feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship with an awkward thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things might not be so terrible after all. The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine’s well-meaning but ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s history teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board.[Source]
