Tall Girl (2019) - Shreya Sachdev

Tall Girl:

Tall Girl Cast / Tall Girl Movie / Tall Girl Netflix / Netflix Tall Girl

Tall Girl is a 2019 comedy movie directed by Nzingha Stewart and stars Ava Michelle, Sabrina Carpenter, Paris Berelc, Griffin Gluck, Angela Kinsey, Steve Zahn, and Luke Eisner. Tall Girl is about a girl named Jodie (played by Ava Michelle) who is currently in high school and gets bullied everyday for being tall, as she is over six feet tall. Therefore, this entire story revolves around how she manages to embrace her height and push past her insecurities. Honestly, I was really excited to watch this movie because in some ways, this is something that I can relate to. If you have read the “Personal Blog” section of my website, then you guys would know that I am quite short and I’ve always been the shortest girl in my school, so being insecure of your height is something that I’ve also had to go through and something that I understand. Anyways, my impression of the movie is that it’s a fun, light hearted movie that’s quite cliche. I wouldn’t say this movie is anything special or anything that Hollywood hasn’t seen before, so I’m not going to spend my time praising this movie, but I will still say that there’s no harm in watching it. Even though it is cliche, it is a little bit different than the usual high school setting which is something I liked seeing. I mean, there’s still the classic group of mean girls and then the nice kids and all of that, but it’s a little bit different and you’ll see why when you watch the movie. However, a lot of the scenes are just really predictable and there are never any surprises or plot twists, which is something I was hoping for. Overall, I would give Tall Girl a 7/10.
