Eighth Grade

Thirteen-year-old Kayla (Elsie Fisher in a stunning debut) endures the tidal wave of suburban adolescence in the age of social media as she makes her way through the last week of middle school—the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year—before she begins high school. Following its buzzworthy premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, this remarkably assured debut from comedian turned writer-director Bo Burnham is an “achingly real, firmly modern coming-of-age tale” (Indiewire).
