Earlier this month, we met with the talented cast of Netflix’s “Tall Girl. ” This movie is great for teens and the entire family, and you can now stream it on Netflix!
Miss Ava Michelle plays “Jodi”, a self-conscious teen who feels she doesn’t fit in because of her height, until she falls for a handsome foreign exchange student. Jodi becomes embroiled in a surprising love triangle and realizes she’s far more than her insecurities about her height have led her to believe.
This movie has a great message especially for teens, who are constantly feeling beat down for being different or unconventional.
Correspondent Victoria Camacho, got the behind the scenes scoop, and spoke to the cast of the new film. Check it out!
My family also had the opportunity to screen the film beforehand, and it brought up some much needed conversations in our home. My girls expressed they felt many relatable moments, and thought this film would be great for teens. Clarissa said, “This coming of age film empowers victims of bullying, and females of all ages. Whether you are bullied for your height, your age, your ethnicity, or your beliefs, this film encourages young individuals, to stand tall and live fearlessly. Bravo, Netflix!”
My son Andrew is 12, and he has seen it a few times since we screened it. He just loves it. Just fyi there may be some mature content in this film, so parents make sure to watch it beforehand to make sure it is appropriate for your preteens.
