Eighth Grade 2018 / Now On Amazon Prime

7.9

You live in a strange world. Or at least, that’s what the generation before you thinks. Eight Grade is a movie that follows a girl going through her generation’s strange world. Social media, selfies, Youtube; you name it. But also, the weight of her expectations (as shaped by the internet) versus her reality. Written and directed by famous comedian Bo Burnham, it’s a gentle and often funny look at our anxieties and how they shape our growth. Prepare for a lot of cringes.

Also every scene showing a phone/computer screen is refreshingly accurate, which is nice.

I thought it was brilliant and completely captured the awkwardness of middle school. Maybe watch it in ten years. It was written and directed by Bo Burnham (I.e., not an old person).
