Eighth Grade

I normally don’t review films that left the theater a while ago, but I am making an exception for “Eighth Grade”. It’s currently on Amazon Prime and I loved it! It tells the story of a young, awkward girl finishing eighth grade. Saying that the story and characters are real is an understatement. The filmmaker has captured adolescences perfectly. And the poor father can’t do anything right in the young girl’s eyes. Elsie Fisher is perfect in the starring role; awkward, arrogant, and delusional. Do not miss this one!
