Sean Mack's Movie Review: "Eighth Grade"

Let's get awkward!

July 20, 2018

Remember high school?  It was fun at times, but there were also moments of cringe.  Lots of them.  

Well, high school has nothing on middle school when it comes to awkward.  There's a new film that captures that awkwardness in all its glory. 


"Eighth Grade" is a critical darling (with a 98 percent Rotten Tomatoes score).  After playing the festival circuit, it opened in New York and Los Angeles last week.  This weekend, it opens in ten more cities...and Austin is one of them.  I got to see it last night-it's a really good portrayal of one girl's ups and downs during her eighth grade year.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll cringe.  It already has a lot of Oscar buzz-go check it out and escape the heat this weekend!
