EIGHTH GRADE
Comedy, Drama | 94mins | Rating: M Offensive language & sexual references

Newcomer Elsie Fisher makes her way through the last week of a disastrous eighth grade year in comedian Bo Burnham's feature debut as director.

"Eighth-grader Kayla Day (Fisher) always has her phone in hand, hoping to find connections online that might make up for those she’s unable to forge in everyday life. She makes YouTube videos aimed at other adolescents dealing with similar issues—feelings of isolation, anxiety, and invisibility—but after so easily summoning this wisdom and confidence when addressing her (barely existent) audience, Kayla finds it paralysingly difficult to apply in real situations. In the final week of a thus-far-disastrous school year—and with high school looming on the horizon—Kayla struggles to bridge the gap between how she perceives herself and who she believes she should be."

Thriller, World Cinema | 85mins | Rating: M Offensive language & content that may disturb

Set entirely within an emergency services phone operating centre, Jakob Cedergren (Submarino) anchors this Danish thriller that won the World Cinema Audience Award at Sundance.

"A sympathetic ear and willingness to help is what you expect when you dial 000. That’s not what happens when Asger Holm (Cedergren) answers. “It’s your own fault, isn’t it?” he tells one caller. But this demoted cop with a bad attitude springs attentively to life after receiving a call from Iben, a distressed mother who claims she’s been kidnapped by her violent ex-husband. Gustav Möller’s mightily impressive first feature delivers breath-quickening suspense without ever leaving the claustrophobic confines of Asger’s office." (Sydney Film Festival)
