Elsie Fisher is sublime as 13 year old Kayla Day - the painfully introverted yet wholly endearing main character of Bo Burnham's debut film. When not drifting through her last year of middle school virtually unnoticed, Kayla spends her time dispensing earnest life advice tips on YouTube - videos that no-one really watches. As the final week of term looms, she resolves to put herself 'out there' and make some friends. At times awkward, sad and laugh-out-loud funny in the same scene, Eighth Grade is a refreshingly clear-eyed view of early adolescence.
