The Target Audience For 'Eighth Grade' Can't See It Due To Its R Rating—But Bo Burnham Has A Solution ❤️

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

This Wednesday night, August 8, the acclaimed Bo Burnham film Eighth Grade will have free screenings in all 50 states without the enforcement of its R rating.

A24 made this possible by partnering with one theater in each state, allowing eighth graders and all teens under 18 a chance to see the movie that was made for them, without the requisite parental guidance.    

Check out the director's tweet announcing the plan:
