It’s time to head back to High School with our favorite Tall Girl, Jodi with Tall Girl 2 coming to Netflix this February.
WHAT IS TALL GIRL?
Tall Girl tells the story of a 6’2, 16-year-old girl named Jodi who has been tall her entire life. She has also been bullied her entire life because of her height. After some self-discovery, heartbreak, and new love, Jodi has come to terms with her height and tells her bullies to shove it. The first film is fantastic. It has everything I love in a coming-of-age teen comedy. There’s a makeover scene, songs, a fantastic speech, and the right guy gets the girl in the end.
Tall Girl 2
After her inspiring speech at the homecoming dance, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the “tall girl” – she’s popular, confident, and has a boyfriend. On top of all that she books the lead role in this year’s school musical, Bye Bye Birdie. As the pressure of her newfound popularity intensifies, so does that voice in her head, and her insecurities. All the while new relationships are formed and old ones are tested. And as the world she built starts to crumble around her, Jodi realizes that standing tall was only just the beginning.
