Eighth Grade (2018)
Viewing Jan '18 ///
An honest look at an awkward transitional phase, in this comedy-drama coming of age story. The casting of this film especially stands out as both eighth grader, Kayla, and her father do a fantastic job of bringing these nuanced characters to life with the chemistry that manifests between them. The semi-predictable plot is overshadowed by the outstanding awkwardness that Kayla exudes, some unexpectedly funny moments jump out at you when you’re least expecting it.
