"The Edge of Seventeen", a film

This is a film about high school students, presumably meant to attract a young audience.  Finding it last night on Netflix and, looking not be terrorized by Trump, it was given a try.  Following somewhat in the "Juno" tradition, it develops into a well done contained bit of entertainment, which does not try to be more than that.  Strange as it may seem, there were many connections.  Teenage girls are remembered and the perils of isolation are part of the story.  If expectations are not high, this becomes a superb distraction.  The feel good ending was completely expected.  That's a necessity for this genre.  The general quality of the acting in this one was far above average.
