Hull Independent Cinema presents: EIGHTH GRADE

At Hull Truck Theatre: BUY TICKETS

An introverted teenage girl tries to survive the last week of her disastrous eighth-grade year before leaving to start high school.

EIGHTH GRADE | Bo Burnham | 2018 | USA | Cert 15 | 94 mins


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. 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.

Starring Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Awards and Reviews

Nominee, Best Actress – 2019 Golden Globes
Winner, Best First Screenplay – 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards
Winner, Breakthrough Director – 2018 Gotham Awards

“You’re going to fall in love with Elsie Fisher. As the breakout star and big, beating heart of Bo Burnham’s feature directorial debut, EIGHTH GRADE Fisher is tasked with carrying an entire film — an achingly real, firmly modern coming-of-age tale – with honesty and vulnerability to spare.” – indieWire

“In addition to its queasy verisimilitude, EIGHTH GRADE offers acute observations on how social media and the language of self-care have warped teen life.” – New York Times


EIGHTH GRADE is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
