Review: Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade is an excellently done coming-of-age film that will probably go under the radar, but shouldn’t. The realism that it portrays isn’t present in a lot of movies that are released these days. It is a breath of fresh air that lets the audience – no matter age, race, or gender – relate to and learn from a 13 year-old girl who has wisdom way beyond her years, whether or not she realizes it.
