NOTES

Title from title frames

Called ‘a classic gay coming of age story’ by The Los Angeles Times, EDGE OF SEVENTEEN is now remastered and re-released in a new director-approved HD restoration. Set in the summer of 1984 in Sandusky, Ohio, teenager Eric Hunter is terrified and exhilarated by his sexual attraction to Rod, a college student and co-worker at a local fast food joint. But, Eric’s sexual awakening is complicated by his new romance with his best friend Maggie. Featuring Lea DeLaria (*Orange is the New Black*) and an upbeat 80’s soundtrack that includes the Eurythmics and Bronski Beat, this critically acclaimed film continues to set the standard for all generations. Chris Stafford's performance earned him a nomination for Best Debut Performance at the 2000 **Film Independent Spirit Awards**. *"Unpretentious, funny and touching, EDGE OF SEVENTEEN rates as a quintessential Amerindie sleeper."* - Dennis Harvey, ***Variety***
