Director: Bo Burnham
Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson, Jake Ryan, Missy Yager, and Daniel Zolghadri
What the critics are saying:
"Eighth Grade takes a look at its titular time period that offers a rare and resounding ring of truth while heralding breakthroughs for writer-director Bo Burnham and captivating star Elsie Fisher." - Certified Fresh Rotton Tomatoes
"An achingly honest film about some of the ghastliest years of adolescence. Funny, tender and endearing." - Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Great in so many freaking ways..." - Bob Grimm
