"The real genius of Eighth Grade is its universality - an honesty and compassion that cut across generational boundaries."
- Mark Kermode, Observer
"Eighth Grade is also deeply sweet in unexpected places and howlingly funny, attuned to the timeless indignities of any adolescence."
- Danny Leigh, Financial Times
"Eighth Grade is a masterpiece."
- Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard
"Effortlessly brilliant, [Elsie Fisher] possesses the plucky, conflicted vulnerability of a young Amy Adams."
- Laruska Ivan-Zadeh, Metro
"Elsie Fisher is absolutely outstanding in the role of Kayla Day, like an undiscovered Fanning sister: her smart, observant performance gives the audience instant access to her vulnerabilities, hurt feelings and quiet determination."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"It's just sweet, sad and beautifully observed."
- Ed Potton, Times
"In short, it is a warm, relatable comedy drama that captures the teenage experience to a tee.."
- Stephen Carty, Radio Times
Refreshingly uncontrived in plot and with performances that are squirmingly authentic from the young cast, this Sundance hit by comedian Bo Burnham immediately enters the pantheon of teen movies.
Fourteen-year-old Kayla (Elsie Fisher) makes YouTube vlogs in her bedroom, encouraging others to 'be yourself'. But that’s something she struggles with, voted 'most quiet' by her classmates.
We follow her in the last week of class before graduating to high school, as she copes with social media, anxiety and sexuality.
Eighth Grade is one of the few modern films to understand how technology has changed teen life, while also offering timeless truths about the pains of adolescence.
