The history of contemporary cinema has seen many worthy attempts to capture the lives of the zoomers who always compare themselves to internet idols. Among the popular examples of the genre are the well-known series Sex Education, Consequences with Jenna Ortega, and last year's hit Bottoms.

However, the 2018 indie coming-of-age film Eighth Grade is considered one of the most realistic reflections of Generation Z. Critics gave the movie an impressive 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. This is reported by Starte Facts. In addition, the drama was named one of the top 10 best films of 2018 by the American Film Institute (AFI).

Its plot revolves around Kayla, a 13-year-old girl who uses the YouTube platform to publish motivational videos and showcase herself. The other side of the heroine's reality is that she is trying to get along with her classmates and survive the last week of high school.

Kayla is supported by her loving father, whose help she does not want to accept. This loneliness forces the girl to look for acceptance and love somewhere else, namely the Internet. Needless to say, this is a dangerous place for an eighth-grade student.

With a young actress in the lead role and a film that is mostly about the experience of girls, it may come as a surprise to you that the writer and director is a man – stand-up comedian and musician Beau Burnham. The author made this film in an attempt to reflect on his own stage anxiety and the panic attacks he experienced throughout his career. Burnham depicted all this through the life of an outcast teenager and cemented the art of realism not only through perfect writing but also through a cast of real schoolchildren.
