Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade ★★★★

"understands the anxiety and pressures of this age like no other. feels both urgent and universal, tender and radical. Proves carefully crafted nostalgia - i.e. the current glut of coming of age movies set in the 80s/90s with bitchin soundtracks - matters so much less than foregrounding characters who are fully seen, and even loved, by the camera."
