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.

Adolescence is excruciating in finely observed gem
One of the funniest, saddest and most heartfelt teen movies ever
Rolling Stone
Eighth Grade is the best movie about adolescence I’ve seen in a long time. Maybe ever.
Molly Ringwald
