EIGHTH GRADE (2018) – AFI Movie Club

Directed by Bo Burnham and starring Elsie Fisher, EIGHTH GRADE was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “EIGHTH GRADE opens a shoebox of emotion – exposing the crippling discomfort that arrives at a time few wish to remember. Bo Burnham’s brilliant writing and directing produce wince-inducing insights into adolescence – the horrors of pool parties, indifferent peers and well-meaning parents all the more shame-filled in a world awash in the isolation of social media. The beating heart of the film is embodied by Elsie Fisher, a transcendent talent whose performance opens old wounds while celebrating the triumph of facing one’s fears – and being yourself.
