The Eighth Grade film, which will reflect social media addiction in the most realistic way in the eye, entered the vision in some movie theaters. Filmin is expected to attract great attention with its realistic content.
The new movie Eighth Grade has entered the vision yesterday in selected movie theaters. In a film that really explains how today’s social media addiction has affected people’s smartphone applications, we’ll meet Kayla, 13 years old. In Eighth Grade film, Kayla constantly spends time with applications such as Snapchat, Instagram through iPhone. The film follows Kayla’s life for a week and reflects who they are today’s young people and what they are doing these days.
In the latest Pew survey, it was found that 45% of young people use the internet almost “on-the-go” and social media mostly have a negative impact on about one-quarter of the young people. The film scenario is also about today’s internet addiction. If you have a family member who constantly spends the day with your phone or TV, you will definitely understand how and why this age group is so sensitive to smartphone addiction after seeing the movie. Many people in this age group are very sad about their body images and can focus on others by looking at their phones all day long.
All Instagram accounts and social media messages in the movie are real. Construction assistants for the film sent texts and DMs in time for Kayla’s iPhone. Filmin creator, director, and writer Bo Burnham said that Kayla is using Facebook as much as it is said that children prefer Snapchat nowadays. The film was filmed in Suffern Middle School in New York using real students and teachers. You will feel real life in Eighth Grade because everything explained is real.
