Teenaged Kayla, a typical shy, awkward teen who spends her day consumed by social media is trying to navigate her final week of middle school, including attending a cool girls end of school party, being mortified by her single dad’s presence, being voted ‘most quiet’ in her class, going to the high school for step up day, summoning the courage to talk to the boy she likes. This first film from young writer/director Bo Burnham, whose career as a stand-up comic started with his YouTube channel, is full of compassion for his heroine, honest, and charming; the inevitable heartbreak is tempered with hilarity.
