Description

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.


Press

"Actress Elsie Fisher shines in, like, a totally spot-on, you know, portrait of Millennial angst and stuff, from first-time director Bo Burnham." - Variety

"Burnham's accomplished debut offers plenty for viewers of all ages, along with a filmmaking vision that is well beyond many of his comedy peers." - RogerEbert.com

"Fisher delivers a glorious symphony of awkward poignancy, from Kayla's cringe-worthy attempts to chat up a popular girl to her ultimately sweet connection with her kind, befuddled single dad." - Seattle Times
