Eighth Grade | Ratings & Reviews

Bo Burnham’s 2018 debut as writer-director saw the precocious star of Inside prove surprisingly adept at conveying the challenging life of a teenage girl in this moving comedy-drama.

"Newcomer Elsie Fisher makes her way through the last week of a disastrous last year of middle school—shy, isolated from her peers, and struggling for connection with her peers both IRL and online."

Flicks, Katie ParkerFlicks

"Burnham has tapped into a byproduct of social-media-saturated adolescence that's often overlooked in favour of parental panic and worst-case-scenario horror stories."

VultureVulture

""Eighth Grade" shines as, like, a totally spot-on, you know, portrait of Millennial angst and stuff."

VarietyVariety

"... a simultaneously harrowing and sweet look at early adolescence."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"Eighth Grade is lovely work, lifted up by a timeless piece of indie wisdom: Keep it real, as cringe-inducing as that can be."

Time OutTime Out

"Heartwrenching, heartwarming and disquieting in equal measure, Eighth Grade is essential viewing for the parents of today's tweens."

StuffStuff

"It might be easy to laugh at Kayla, but Burnham and Fisher endow her with so much pathos that audiences are more likely to feel sympathy."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"For all Burnham's skill in making the artfully-composed film, it's Fisher who really carries all the humour and heart, delivering a stunning performance that serves as a painfully relatable avatar for everybody watching."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"The kind of comedy that hipper parents might just be able to watch with their own offspring and enjoy."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Nevertheless, thanks to a wonderfully sensitive and bold performance from [Elise] Fisher and some standout work from Burnham behind the camera, Eighth Grade is ultimately an effective-if not exactly revelatory-watch."
