Eighth Grade numet.ro/eighthgrade  5311
‘Eighth Grade’ - YouTuber Bo Burnham writes and directs this sleeper about a 13-year-old YouTuber giving advice and pretending to have it all together. You’ll love Elsie Fisher!

Release date: Fri 22 Feb 2019
Running time:109 (1h49’)
Age restriction:13 L S


In his feature film directorial debut, comedian Bo Burnham deftly encapsulates the awkwardness, angst, self-loathing and reinvention that a teenage girl goes through on the cusp of high school. Given that the 27-year-old stand-up comic achieved fame as a teenager himself through YouTube by riffing on his insecurities, he is uniquely capable as the film's writer and director to tell the story of Kayla. Kayla is an anxious girl navigating the final days of her eighth grade year. Like Burnham did more than a decade ago, 13-year-old Kayla turns to YouTube to express herself, where she makes advice blogs in which she pretends to have it all together.
