Hailee Steinfeld’s Life Really Sucks In The First Edge Of Seventeen Trailer

Poor Haiz has high school drama up the wazoo

Though she most recently stole our hearts as a college a cappella champ in Pitch Perfect 2, Hailee Steinfeld is heading back to high school for her latest film.

On Thursday, People debuted the first trailer for The Edge of Seventeen, in which Hailee plays a teen with a laundry list of devastating (at least, by high school standards) problems. How does her life suck so? Let us count the ways: Her supposed BFF (Haley Lu Richardson) is hooking up with her annoyingly perfect brother (Glee’s Blake Jenner); she accidentally sends embarrassingly graphic texts to her crush; her only confidante is her apathetic history teacher (Woody Harrelson); and her mom (Kyra Sedgwick) is hopelessly clueless about all of this ~drama~.

Check out the full trailer below, which is surprisingly not soundtracked by Stevie Nicks's “Edge of Seventeen,” but by an acoustic cover of The Beatles’s “Help.” What a missed opportunity.

The Edge of Seventeen arrives in theaters on September 30.
