    Marriage Story

    A work of remarkable emotional realism (the honesty, the nuance, the messiness of it all) that shows the heartbreaking and dehumanizing effect of the divorce process. Fantastic.

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    This is a FANTASTIC coming-of-age film. It's hilarious, sympathetic, and completely honest. Kayla is a character who (I believe) perfectly represents her specific group while also serving as a surrogate for anyone who went through middle school. I saw so much of myself in her. A fantastic performance by Elsie Fisher. Also fits incredibly well as a text of the #MeToo movement.

    The best part though? Bo Burnham requesting that more women get the mic at the post-screening Q&A, and then ending by bringing an 8th grader in the audience onto the stage to talk with him.
