Eighth Grade

81ShxvNEAJL. RI SX300  Eighth Grade

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.

This was an exercise in anxiety and self loathing that was great to experience once, but man I did not know what kind of film I was getting myself into. Was it going to have a sudden twist that would ruin it? It’s directed by that one guy that does a stand up routine that’s completely off the walls in every good way, so maybe it’ll have that twist? Was that the twist? Is there no twist? What’s going to happen when she’s alone?

Such a great film that I suggest you check out, but only if you were a 13 year old at any point in your life.
