Going to the Movies With Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld is giving us John Hughes feelings.

The actress-singer stars in the upcoming Edge of Seventeen, a coming-of-age film that’s being compared to the movies of the late director of classics such as The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Some Kind of Wonderful.

In Edge of Seventeen, Steinfeld plays an awkward teen who finds out that her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson) is dating her much cooler older brother (Blake Jenner).

Not only is the flick one of the fall’s most buzzed-about movies, but it also has the honor of being the closing night film of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Steinfeld, 19, recently sat down to fill out E! News’ “Going to the Movies With” questionnaire…

I Love My Popcorn With: “Butter.”

My Favorite Movie Candy: “Sour Patch: Watermelon.”

My Favorite Line From a Movie: “‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry’ from Love Story.”

The Movie That Scares Me the Most: “The Purge.”

The Last Movie That Made Me Laugh Out Loud: “Sausage Party.”

Edge of Seventeen is in theaters on Nov. 18.
