Kayla Day (Elsie Fisher – Despicable Me) has a daily blog, with some of her most recent on ‘being yourself’ and ‘putting yourself out there’. While 13-year-old Kayla Day is insightful, funny and confident online, in person, she really struggles to actually follow her own advice and make any friends. With one more week to go, Kayla is really looking forward to leaving eighth grade behind.
Directed by Bo Burnham (who you may know from Repeat Stuff), this film shows heart, humour, horror, joy and compassion. Covering masturbation, physical changes, texting nude photos, exploring boundaries, and sex being on everyone minds, it’s not surprising that this ‘dramedy’ debut won the Sundance Official Selection award.
