Focus Features 'THE MUSTANG' Official Trailer

Movie Review: EIGHTH GRADE 'One of the best films this year'

Eighth Grade is written and directed by Bo Burnham, the one of a kind VINE star and also Stand up Comedian who decided to take his chance with his first directorial effort and written effort for a film, which might I add paid off in so many ways. Eighth Grade is a coming of age film about a young girl name Kayla (Elsie Fisher) who is in her last week of the hell hole I like to call Eighth Grade. She trying to survive and make it on her way to high school. Now from the premise this sounds like another indie coming of age film something like Lady Bird last year or Edge of 17 from the year before.

All of which were fantastic, but This film is special and very different in the best of ways. This is not only one of the best films of the year, but one of the most relatable coming of age films I’ve ever seen. Burnham somehow found a way in his directing and writing to take me back to Eighth Grade and remember memories that I buried away. (for good reason) But took me right back to my 8th grade class where I was a brat and kind of a dick. Like most kids were or are at that age. The film surprised me in how much I could relate and talking to others at the screening it seems like it brought them into that sense as well. That is something I find really hard to capture in film and for a first time director my hat is off to you.

The film wouldn’t work though if it wasn’t for our main star in here, who I will proclaim now YOU MUST REMEMBER ELSIE FISHER'S NAME. She is a star in the making and gives one of the most heartfelt and personal performances of the year. She is not only vulnerable but also relatable in every way her character is framed. It doesn’t matter how old you are there will be something from her performance and this film for you to relate too. Josh Hamilton also pops in as her father who gives such a subtle but brilliant performance that brings a lot of the most heartfelt moments to the film as well. Eighth Grade is one of the most memorable, relatable, and heartfelt films this year.

I am almost willing to call it a masterpiece of coming of age films, but i'll save that to see how It works on rewatches. Find this film this weekend and see it, it's one of the few indie films that I think works on all levels and works for everyone. The performances to the direction this film was fantastic.

Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
