There’s always that one indie darling that releases in the middle of the year and steals the hearts of millions. It looks like Eighth Grade is that movie this year, capturing the uncomfortable and awkward nature of the early teenage years. From writer/director Bo Burnham, Eighth Grade may just become a coming-of-age classic.
The following review will be spoiler free.
Directed By: Bo Burnham
Written By: Bo Burnham
Starring: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson, Jake Ryan, Missy Yager, Daniel Zolghadri
Thirteen-year-old Kayla (Fisher) 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.
