Eighth Grade

Dir. Bo Burnham. USA, 2018. 1h 34m. Starring Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson, Jake Ryan, Daniel Zolghadri, Fred Hechinger, Imani Lewis, Luke Prael.

Introverted teen Kayla endures a tidal wave of suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the final week of middle school – ending a disastrous eighth-grade year before she begins high school. A bittersweet and exquisitely observed drama directed by American comedian Bo Burnham.

‘The real genius of Eighth Grade is its universality - an honesty and compassion that cut across generational boundaries.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘Burnham may have crafted a simple story about the most ordinary of teenage girls, but it speaks with the emotions of a true cinematic epic.’ ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
