The Edge of Seventeen
Rating & Content Info
Why is The Edge of Seventeen rated R? The Edge of Seventeen is rated R by the MPAA for sexual content, language and some drinking - all involving teens.
Violence: Schoolyard bullying is depicted, and a young girl carrying her lunch is knocked to the ground by a group of boys. Frequent verbal altercations within families are included. A father and daughter are involved in a car accident when the driver suddenly has a medical emergency—the accident itself doesn’t cause injury.
Sexual Content: A teen boy and girl are briefly seen in bed, he is seen topless and she is briefly seen wearing a bra. Sexual activity is strongly implied. This teen girl then regularly sleeps over at the teen boy’s home with the mother’s knowledge. A teen girl sends a very explicit text to a teen boy offering him sexual favors, he responds by accepting her offer. In a later scene the pair are in a parked car and he begins to fondle her breasts and move on top of her with the expectation of sex—she pushes him off and a heated conversation follows before she leaves the car. Some other scenes include explicit discussions of sex between teens. A boy shows art he has drawn where the hands of the character has penises instead of fingers.
Profanity: Profanity is used throughout, including the sexual expletive about 12 times. Other language issues include crude and/or correct terms for sexual anatomy, scatological expletives and uses of Christian deity as expletives.
Alcohol / Drug Use: While a parent is absent, two teens consume a bottle of alcohol between them; later one is seen throwing up in a toilet while the other makes the choice to engage in sexual behavior. Teens are also depicted drinking alcohol at a party.
