Luna Exclusive! Comedian Bo Burnham’s critically-acclaimed feature debut comes to Luna Leederville on January 3
An incredibly beautiful movie about the worst time in your life. The critically acclaimed directorial debut from comedian Bo Burham, EIGHTH GRADE follows thirteen-year-old Kayla (the jaw-droppingly good Elsie Fisher) as she struggles through her last week of middle school while running the gauntlet of peer cliques, social media, and the indignities of being a teenager.
13-year-old Kayla Day (Elsie Fisher) always has her phone in hand, hoping to find connections online that might make up for those she’s unable to forge in everyday life. She makes aspirational YouTube videos for a mostly non-existent audience of teenagers dealing with loneliness, anxiety, invisibility and outright rejection – but is unable to apply her wisdom to her own life and real situations. In the final week of a disastrous school year—and with high school looming on the horizon—Kayla struggles to bridge the gap between how she perceives herself and who she believes she should be.
“Eighth Grade is a sheer delight - one of those extraordinary gems, a film that is overflowing with insight, wit and humanity.” -HeyUGuys.com
“Elsie Fisher is a revelation.” - Vogue
