Eighth Grade (15)
Director Bo Burnham, USA, 2018, 1hr 33mins
Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson
A poignant, sensitive exploration of the challenges of early adolescence in the age of social media, Eighth Grade follows introverted, 13 year old Kayla (an astonishingly nuanced performance by newcomer Elsie Fisher) as she navigates the tumultuous last week of middle school before she begins high school. Possibly because it manages to break down every delusion we have about ourselves and to burrow deep into those parts we’ve made such an effort to lock away, the film has collected many admirers since its release including Barack Obama who listed it as one of his favourite films of 2018.
