Eighth Grade

Comedy; NR; 94m. 

Thirteen-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.

 

“Having empathy for your characters often means giving them opportunities for growth, and Burnham thankfully never loses sight of the belief that things truly can get better if you want them to.” – Dan Caffrey, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

 

“At every turn, Fisher is honest and open, relatable to the point that you feel as if you’re actually watching her own life play out.” – Kate Erbland, INDIEWIRE

 

“Eighth Grade rejects predictable plot points and instead lives on the electric edge of awkwardness and uncertainty and doubt that represents the middle school experience; you never quite know what’s going to happen to Kayla, and that feels right.” – Bilge Ebiri,  VILLAGE VOICE
