Flick In A Limerick

A young girl tries to make it through middle school
A group of friends try to play her for a fool
She can’t afford to be bothered
From an overprotective loving father
As she discovers about herself what makes her cool

The Big Finish

The awkward pre teen phase is so much more difficult in the new digital age. This movie does an excellent job of displaying suburb America’s obsession with urban culture such as doing the dab or saying gucci or lit. An accurate account of middle school is displayed as this picture did not shy away from the cursing to the blow job scene. The best part of this movie is how incredible the father daughter relationship is captured. Emily Robinson and Josh Hamilton deliver great performances. I think even if you are an adult there is something in this film for everyone to enjoy. Eighth Grade showcases how to persevere through the drama of adolescence by being proud of who you are and the person you can’t wait to become.
