Bo Burnham’s award-winning debut feature!


United States | 2018 | Bo Burnham

EIGHTH GRADE film still

Snubbed by Oscar (no nominations!) despite winning multiple festival, critic, and guild awards across the U.S., Bo Burnham’s debut feature remains one of the very best movies released last year. Elsie Fisher, in a breakout performance, plays a shy, awkward teen trying to make a graceful exit from awful eighth grade in order to start high school afresh as a confident new person. Funny, painful, perceptive, and touching. DCP. 94 min.
