Eighth Grade

In Eighth Grade, a poignant coming-of-age story, 13-year-old Kayla Day (a spectacular Elsie Fisher) shows us the postmillennial perils of social media and the hard-won lesson of marching to the beat of your own drum.

Poster for the coming-of-age dramedy Eighth GradeAt school, Kayla eats alone at lunch, never gets invited to parties, and can barely muster the courage to speak to her classmates. The only time she feels comfortable is when she sits in front of her home computer making affirmational YouTube videos.

Director Bo Burnham reveals his heroine’s anxieties, hopes, and dreams in all of their miraculous, cringeworthy, universal beauty. Eighth Grade is an absolute delight that stings with truth. It’s heartbreaking, heartwarming, and a total charmer.
