Movie night at Il Caffé, a charming Italian restaurant on a pedestrian road behind the Peón Contreras theater. Have dinner on your own at 6 to enjoy a free movie, aimed at English-speaking audiences, at 7.
This week’s pick: In his feature film directorial debut, comedian and YouTube superstar Bo Burnham encapsulates the awkwardness, angst and self-loathing of a teenage girl on the cusp of high school.
Multiple award-winning “Eighth Grade” (2018) tells the story of 13-year-old Kayla as she turns to YouTube to express herself, where she makes advice blogs in which she pretends to have it all together.
In reality, Kayla is sullen and silent around her single father and her peers at school, carrying out most of her interactions with her classmates on Instagram and Twitter.
Her YouTube videos are a clever narrative tool that provide insight into her inner hopes and dreams, much like an inspirational online diary.
Winner of the Audience Awards at major film festivals, including Chicago Critics Film Festival, San Francisco, Seattle, and Sundance London
