Eighth Grade (2018)
Critic Reviews for Eighth Grade
Burnham's accomplished debut offers plenty for viewers of all ages, along with a filmmaking vision that is well beyond many of his comedy peers.
It keeps threatening to become a cringe-fest, but pulls back, as Burnham opts instead for something more human and realistic. There's a lived-in wisdom in the film.
Eighth Grade is lovely work, lifted up by a timeless piece of indie wisdom: Keep it real, as cringe-inducing as that can be.
A lovely, truthful comedy about the pure nightmare that is junior high.
"Eighth Grade" isn't a documentary, but it hews as close to the modern coming-of-age experience as currently seems possible.
