An introverted teenage girl tries to survive the last week of her disastrous eighth grade year before leaving to start high school. (IMDb)
Terrific performances, a wonderful, authentic script, and a unique use of music combine to make a wholly immersive and emotional trip back to eighth grade with the endlessly endearing Kayla: every triumph is pure ecstasy, every awkward conversation pure torture, every venture out of a comfort zone more terrifying than any horror flick (see entering the pool party). The chicken nuggets scene was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen- FUCK THE HATERS JUST BE YOURSELF I’M SOBBING
9/10 (Amazing)
