How an anxious teen and an ex-YouTuber made an indie box office hit

According to director, writer and ex-YouTube star Bo Burnham, his debut feature Eighth Grade is “really intense”, despite not much happening.

The film follows 13-year-old Kayla as she navigates social media and the last week of middle school.

It’s already been a huge hit at the box office in the United States and with young audiences.

Bo and Eighth Grade actress Elsie Fisher explain why the film has resonated with teenagers.
