I love these girls. They’re such sweet, wonderful girls, and I had so much fun getting to know them in Tall Girl. –Angela Kinsey
Jodi Kreyman deals with her newfound popularity. Her miscommunications, however, start causing rifts with those around her and now she really needs to “stand tall.”
Self condemnation is real and often times we put more on ourselves than we can and should try to carry. Tall Girl 2 took me back to my high school years and the different phases of feeling awkward. This movie isn’t for the adults and speaks to the hearts of young adults (teens). Some movies aren’t to be reviewed and should be seen as lessons that are important to understand in life as one grows up.
“I started my day at the middle school, and then at lunch, my mom would pick me up, and I would eat lunch in the car with my mom, as we drove across town to the high school, where I would finish my day,” she explained. “So I never got to be part of the middle school … just fitting in or being social there because I missed all the activities where I would meet people. Then at the upper school I was too young for the after-school activities, so I didn’t participate in them.”- Angela Kinsey
After her inspiring speech at the homecoming dance, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the “tall girl” – she’s popular, confident, has a boyfriend, and just booked the lead role in this year’s school musical. But as the pressure of her newfound popularity intensifies, so do her insecurities, and new relationships are formed while old ones are tested. As the world she built starts to crumble around her, Jodi realizes that standing tall was only just the beginning.
