Edge of Seventeen (2016)

Before this movie even started I was already baffled by the sheer number of company logos at the start. Had the trailers been hiding something from me? Was there going to be some effects-filled, third act twist that would justify so many funding sources for a film about a teenage girl trying to figure her life out? Not to spoil anything but, giant robots and dinosaurs do not show up at any point in this movie. So why did a hilarious and heartfelt film, produced by a Hollywood legend, starring an Oscar nominee who also appears in a popular franchise, need to go to so many different sources for such a modest $9mil budget? I'd venture it has something to do with the fact that the director was a first timer...and female. Please pay to see this film and show all those financiers that their money was well spent!
