Eighth Grade is an upcoming film that revolves on a suburban girl’s coming-of-age story, and it marks as the directorial debut of YouTube star-turned-professional comedian, Bo Burnham.

Starring a teenager named Kayla, portrayed by Elsie Fisher, the film is centered on the final week of her eighth-grade year before leaving to start high school. As the trailer reveals, Kayla goes through the trials and tribulations when growing into a teenager, which ranges from rise of hormones, embarrassment and awkwardness that we’ve all dealt with ourselves, and try to forget.

Also starring Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson, Missy Yager, Greg Crowe and others, Eighth Grade is slated to debut in theaters on Friday, July 13.

In other upcoming films, the first official ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ trailer mixes Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Hogwarts.
