Details

Eighth Grade is everything you would hope for from stand-up comic and YouTube sensation Bo Burnham. Scalpel-sharp in its observations and painfully funny, it follows 13-year-old Kayla (Elsie Fisher) as she embarks on her incredible journey towards high school. Crippled by self-loathing and insecurity, she creates YouTube advice vlogs that present a calmly confident persona to the world. The reality is a sullen resentment of her single dad, fragile friendships and a so-called life that only seems to exist on social media. Welcome to the nightmare world of the modern teenager. GFF19
