Director: Bo Burnham
2018 / 93min / DCP

Middle schooler Kayla (Elsie Fisher), struggling to accept herself and find acceptance from her classmates, remodels herself as a motivational vlogger in Burnham’s feature directorial debut, which draws heavily on his own experience as a teenaged YouTube phenom. A funny, sweetly empathetic portrait of adolescence in the age of cultivated online self-presentation, featuring remarkable performances from Fisher, the untutored actors playing her classmates, and Josh Hamilton as her single father. “Offers acute observations on how social media and the language of self-care have warped teen life… Revels in the rough, pimply particularities of middle school.”—Naomi Fry, The New Yorker
