Thirteen-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school — the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year — before she begins high school.
Honestly, for the accolades Eight Grade received, I'm still trying to figure out what made it stand out. Was it awful? No, far from it. However, it didn't stand out to me as an excellent piece of work. It's another coming of age film, that I found a little depressing.
