I'm a father of two teenage girls having social issues in the suburbs USA. I can tell you this is one of the most true to life movie I have ever seen. If you are looking for a cliche Hollywood film, this is not for you. This is a family conversation piece for these days (2018). My advice is for the whole family to watch it together (except underage kids, of course) and then start a dialogue. I recommended it 100%.

The Synopsis for Eighth Grade (2018) 720p
In his feature film directorial debut, comedian Bo Burnham deftly encapsulates the awkwardness, angst, self-loathing and reinvention that a teenage girl goes through on the cusp of high school. Given that the 27-year-old stand-up comic achieved fame as a teenager himself through YouTube by riffing on his insecurities, he is uniquely capable as the film's writer and director to tell the story of Kayla, an anxious girl navigating the final days of her eighth grade year, despite creating a protagonist w female instead of male. Like Burnham did more than a decade ago, 13-year-old Kayla turns to YouTube to express herself, where she makes advice blogs in which she pretends to have it all together. In reality, Kayla is sullen and silent around her single father and her peers at school, carrying out most of her interactions with her classmates on Instagram and Twitter. Her YouTube videos are a clever narrative tool that provide insight into her inner hopes and dreams, much like an ...

WOW! This movie hit home pretty hard.Reviewed bypeter-aponteVote: 10/10
The trailer was amazing and had been dying to see it. So I started to watch hoping I was gonna love it. Starts a little slow compared to how the trailer painted it. (The opening monologue is way too long)
A few extras looking too much into the camera in a distracting way and overdoing their background work. A few camera shots were jarring and distracting. Minor things, but surprised.
Too much music driving the scenes. It almost starts to feel like a music video. As soon as one song stopped and it felt like just being a movie instead of a musical montage, another track started. By the pool that started to get REALLY annoying. Less music and quicker cuts would have been better. Music was also too loud. Whoever was in charge of the music should be fired. What a shame.
JESUS!! They literally could not let the movie play for 30 seconds without starting a new track!! It went throughout the whole movie, until toward the end. It ruined it!!
No coherent story. Just random scenes that constantly digressed from one focus to another. No one story-line ever really completed. It was almost like it wasn't written, but not in a good way. Sometimes I felt it was overwritten so it was odd.
Some of the scenes were a little too forced and unnatural like they were pushing the cringe too much and not creating a balance of emotions. Some were just straight up staged like the hallway where she fasces the two popular girls who are ignoring her on their phones.
There was a lot of humor inferred in the trailer, but it was actually mostly cringe and very little humor.
SO DISAPPOINTED! It was the ONE movie of the year I was looking forward to that looked the most promising.
I was introduced to Bo Burnham by my adult children who found his stand-up specials funny. I watched and found him extremely talented with an underlying sadness.
I expected this movie to be uproarious with an undercurrent of teenage angst. Instead, it was incredibly poignant and moving. In fact, it was so painful atbpkints I found it difficult to watch.
In the scene where she drops her cell phone due to excitement of being invited to the mall by an older friend, my eyes began to well up with tears.
It is one of the most realistic movies regarding youth that I have ever seen.
A painful watch but well worth it. Burnham has a big future ahead of him.
