We saw Eighth Grade
, and it was pretty good [thumbs up] . . . we liked it (it felt genuine, and the dad was caring) more than An Education
[thumbs down] which, although entertaining wasn’t as good (glamorous and all but the boyfriend was evil and the heroine was too much for a 16 year-old). Both are coming of age dramas, the first focusing on a contemporary 13 year-old and the later on a 16 year-old in 1960’s England. It just might be that since I had live buttered organic popcorn at The Roxy
for Eighth Grade I liked it best! I spent 7th-8th+9th grades at Fairview Junior H.S. I had a miserable time, a very miserable time. Not much went right at school but outside of school I experienced wilderness canoe tripping in the Canadian north. That was very right and very wonderful.
