The Edge of Seventeen star Hailee Steinfeld discusses how being home-schooled was both a help and a hindrance to playing a public high school student, while the film's director Kelly Fremon Craig describes the "extremely difficult" process of finding the perfect actress to play Nadine, saying "the skies opened up" when Hailee arrived. Oscar-winning producer James L. Brooks explains why the script underwent such a major transformation from page to screen. Hailee then talks about her co-star Hayden Szeto, whom she says has "the best sense of humor." And since The Edge of Seventeen is all about teenagers, Hailee, Kelly, and James reveal their all-time favorite high school movies.
