Reviews


91
IndieWire - Kate Erbland
At every turn, Fisher is honest and open, relatable to the point that you feel as if you’re actually watching her own life play out.
90
New York Magazine (Vulture) - Emily Yoshida
Eighth Grade is cognizant of all the new scary realities of growing up with an internet-connected camera on your person at all times, but it also finds hope in it, as, if nothing else, a tool for self-discovery.
90
Village Voice - Bilge Ebiri
Eighth Grade rejects predictable plot points and instead lives on the electric edge of awkwardness and uncertainty and doubt that represents the middle school experience; you never quite know what’s going to happen to Kayla, and that feels right.
83
The Playlist - Jordan Ruimy
Fisher must be given immense credit for making it all work as her performance is pitch-perfect in every respect. Sometimes, it feels like you’re not even watching an actress perform but an actual person. The way Burnham shot some of the scenes makee it feel like non-fiction rather than fiction.
83
The A.V. Club - A.A. Dowd
What makes this coming-of-age film special is that it’s at once harsh and humanist: a perceptive, realistic comedy about tweenage life that’s also rich in compassion, that scarcest of junior-high commodities.
