7. The indie drama – Eighth Grade

Let's steer away from superheroes once again with this intuitive and poignant coming of age drama. Newcomer Elsie Fisher is superb as the middle-schooler who is ostracised by her peers, and distant from her single father.

There's still time to catch Tim Burton's live-action remake of the Disney animated classic.
