Comedian Bo Burnham’s feature-film debut Eighth Grade is one of the year’s most buzzed-about new releases, due in theaters July 13.
Following 13-year-old Kayla’s (Elsie Fisher) final week of middle school in contemporary suburban America, it charts the hilarious highs and heartbreaking lows of adolescence with agonizingly funny honesty and humor. Join Burnham to see the trailer and clips from the movie and to hear how this 27-year-old star made the rapid transition from teen YouTube sensation to in-demand comic to filmmaker — and why he’s revisiting the traumas of middle school in his first big-screen outing.
