Exclusive Video Interview: Elsie Fisher on Making ‘Family Squares,’ a Movie about Living and Mourning in the Pandemic

Elsie Fisher is only eighteen years old, and she’s already had a remarkably impressive career. She made her acting debut at age six with a guest spot on the TV series Medium, and voiced Agnes in Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. Her most notable role to date was in Bo Burnham’s endearing hit Eighth Grade, in which she played an awkward teenager with a certain idea of who she was on social media that didn’t always translate to reality.

Now, Fisher is part of an incredible cast as one of the youngest members of the Worth family, who gather on Zoom during the pandemic to say goodbye to Grandma Mabel (June Squibb). Among Fisher’s many top-tier costars are Timothy Simons as her father, Margo Martindale as her grandmother, and Henry Winkler as her great-uncle.

I had the chance to speak with Fisher about the experience of working with legends, making a movie from a computer screen, and how she feels about her recent streak of horror movies.

You can watch the video below, along with an official summary.

Mayhem quickly ensues as long buried family secrets bubble to the surface with a shocking revelation. But, as they begin to find their way back to each other, they soon realize that while you can’t choose your family, you can choose to be friends with them.
