Film Looks Into Teen Violence
10 October 1999 | by Matt-343See all my reviews

Edge City takes a realistic and edgy view on teen violence and it's origins. An simple prank in a fast food parking lot quickly turns into full fledged rape as rumors continue to spread through a Philadelphia suburb. The rising rumors show how one single rude, but harmless act can elevate into a serious problem for innocent people. The jumpy film style is a bit harsh on the eyes at times, but the story and characters ring true to teen life.
