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.
“In addition to its queasy verisimilitude, “Eighth Grade” offers acute observations on how social media and the language of self-care have warped teen life.” – Naomi Fry, New Yorker
“An achingly honest film about some of the ghastliest years of adolescence. Funny, tender and endearing.” – Rafer Guzman, Newsday
“Eighth Grade is a harrowing portrait of anxiety and acceptance in a post-social-media landscape, showing how all of us cope with an ever-changing, constantly refreshing world.” – Cody Corrall, Chicago Reader
