“Exquisite. A harrowing, alarmingly perceptive look at early adolescence.” —Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair.
Winner of Best Film at Seattle International Film Festival! 13-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence 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. “So deeply rooted in the feminine adolescent experience that it often feels as if director Bo Burnham cracked open a whole mess of girls’ diaries to pen it. You’re going to fall in love with Elsie Fisher, the big beating heart of Eighth Grade.” —Kate Erbland, IndieWire. R. 94 Min.
