13-year-old Kayla is coming to the end of middle school. Plagued by social anxiety, she channels her creativity and longing for friendship into her online persona, confidently dispensing advice via video blogs. But nobody watches them, and during her last days of eighth grade she becomes determined to connect in real life with the girls who look down on her and the boys who don’t even look at her.
US comedian, actor and writer Bo Burnham’s coming-of-age comedy-drama Eighth Grade is a hilarious and heart-warming look at the trials and tribulations of adolescence. This is one of the films most anticipated by Showroom staff this year; when you watch it you’ll be just as loved-up as we are!
