This month we'll be watching "Eighth Grade" (2018, R, 93 minutes). Comedian and writer Bo Burnham made his directorial debut with this critically-acclaimed coming-of-age story about a socially-awkward teenager trying to survive her last weeks of middle school.
This film was selected from Kanopy, the free digital streaming video service offered to all City of La Crosse residents through the La Crosse Public Library. Kanopy is proud to now offer the entire A24 film studio catalog, including recent films like "Eighth Grade," "First Reformed," "Lady Bird," "Hereditary," "The Florida Project," and more.
