Movie Info

Jodi (Ava Michelle) has always been the tallest girl in school -- and she's always been uncomfortable with it. After slouching her way through life for 16 years and being made fun of by classmates, Jodi meets Stig (Luke Eisner), a seemingly perfect Swedish foreign exchange student who's even taller than she is. Jodi's new crush turns her world upside down and throws her into a surprising love triangle, but with the help of her two best friends (Griffin Gluck, Anjelika Washington) as well as her beauty queen sister Harper (Sabrina Carpenter), Jodi comes to realize that she's far more than her insecurities about her appearance have led her to believe. TALL GIRL, director Nzingha Stewart's first feature film, is a heartfelt and hilarious coming-of-age story about finding the confidence to stop slouching and stand tall.

  • America's mood has changed, and many viewers might not feel much empathy for the small-minded grievances of wealthy teens who drive to school in S.U.V.s.

  • From a one-note mean girl stereotype to a complete disinterest in how social media shapes the lives of teens, Sam Wolfson's lackluster script fails to bring anything new or timely to the teen rom-com table.

  • Tall Girl is not a movie with depth, though it is more charming than you'd expect. It's just such a shame about that ending.

  • Coming-of-age comedy about feeling different; mild cursing.

  • Jodi's problem is easily overcome: she just needs to love herself and let others love her - societal norms be damned.

    Sep 19, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Tall Girl has nothing new or fresh to bring to the genre. Instead, it feels a little cheap, very hollow, and loaded with scenes that you can see coming a mile off, even without a height advantage.
