EIGHTH GRADE

Bo Burnham

USA 93 min. min Spanish premiere

Synopsis

Bo Burnham is a man-orchestra. He is a musician, actor and comedian. So far, he has stood out for his stand-up spectacles, absolutely atypical, in which he deconstructs the comedy of his life through multidisciplinary performance. His debut as a filmmaker, Eighth Grade, is a coming-of-age starring a thirteen-year-old teenager (paying attention to Elsie Fisher, a whole revelation) that goes unnoticed by his classmates, and who is in that one impasse between the end of a stage (the school) and the beginning of a new one (the institute). The film is a full-fledged teenage story, shot in a sensitive and empathetic way, and offering an exploration of the vital insecurity that transcends its microcosm. With echoes from Lady Bird, the film is also revealed as a story about the discovery of the darkest parts of adulthood.
