An introverted teenage girl tries to survive the last week of her disastrous eighth grade year before leaving to start high school.
Speaking on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, director Bo Burnham said that technology company Apple were going to provide laptops and phones for the film for free, but they were unhappy with the scene where the iPhone broke when it got thrown. As a result, the laptops shown in the film were those belonging to the crew and the broken iPhone scene was kept in.
Eighth grade is the worst.
In the mall scene where Kayla first walks in to meet Olivia, she walks past a number of mid-mall kiosks. One of them has a mirror and you can see the crew briefly reflected as she moves through the scene.
