Eighth Grade (15)
US | 2018 | 94’ | Bo Burnham | AD | ST
Thirteen year-old Kayla is struggling through the last days of middle school, plagued by social anxiety and awkwardness, but channelling her creativity into a confident online persona. Longing for friendship she becomes determined to connect to the girls who look down on her and the boys who don’t even look at her. An exceptional central performance powers this funny, touching and distinctively clear-eyed look at adolescence.
