Eighth Grade

Drama 1h 34m 2018

AroView: Comedian Bo Burnham knocks it out of the park with this feature debut as writer-director of this incisive coming-of-age drama that provides an unflinching glimpse into the experience of a 13-year-old girl striving to gain social acceptance in her final week of junior high.

Bolstered by an incredibly natural performance from newcomer Elsie Fisher, who expertly embodies Gen-Z angst and the anxiety that social media and widespread smart phone use can cause in teenagers.

“Cognizant of all the new scary realities of growing up with an internet-connected camera on your person at all times, but it also finds hope in it, as, if nothing else, a tool for self-discovery.” ~Emily Yoshida, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
