Edge of Seventeen  (1998)

In 1984, shy, cute Eric works a summer job at an amusement park with his best friend Maggie until setting and circumstances change when Eric finds himself dating an older man and leaving Maggie behind.  Sustaining indignities and injuries on the bumpy road to love, Eric gradually learns to trust his loved ones, and to love himself.  The film’s pitch-perfect evocation of the mid-‘80s recalls a time of life we all may remember with a little embarrassment and a lot of emotion.
