Eighth Grade

USA 2018. Director: Bo Burnham. Language: English. Subtitle: Swedish. Recommended for age: From age 13.

Kayla is in her last year of junior high school, and most things are just embarrassing and annoying. She wonders how she should behave to fit in. The funniest film at this year’s BUFF captures the melancholy of teenage existence and that strange feeling of no longer being a child, but not yet an adult, accurately and with humour. Elsie Fisher is irresistable in her depiction of an awkward Kayla, and was nominated earlier this year for a Golden Globe for best leading role.

Pre Movie:

The Messenger

“Do you want to go to the cinema with me? <3”. That question is sometimes easier to ask via text messages than to someone’s face at school surrounded by your friends. But what happens to messages once we send them? What route do they take before arriving at the recipient? Suddenly, the thing that mustn’t happen happens: a very important text message goes astray.
