Bo Burnham has made an incredible feature film debut with Eighth Grade, one that's simultaneously hilarious, moving and truthful, with a star-making performance by Elsie Fisher. Burnham executes his brilliant script with such authenticity and infuses so much soul and humor into it, which is brought to life so beautifully by his amazing cast of actors.

You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll remember it for a long time.
