The film “Tall Girl” is about Jodi – a girl who is 1m86 tall always wants to blend in with the crowd, disgusted by others paying attention to her because of her height. Jodi just wants to be “a girl” and not “a tall girl”.
The movie basically has a similar pattern to other High School movies like: “THE DUFF”, “Easy A”, “Mean Girls“, … But maybe because of the moment, “Tall Girl” brought More emotions for me than ever before. There are beautiful lines that are hard to imagine, among them is when Jodi’s sister, who has been a “beauty queen” since the age of 6, told her sister, “You mean more to. me than any stupid crown “, when Jodi’s father stood in front of her room and said” I only want to say that I love you “, or the scene where Dunkleman fantasizes about the day Jodi falls in love with a guy other than him, she will want to wear high heels, and when across the block The streets to find a pair that suits him, and then, when he’s too powerless to search, Jodi will remember the shoes he gave.
In the last scene, when Jodi wore high heels, wore a high collar and suit to the night of the prom, I was a bit spicy. The film does not convey much more than the message of “loving yourself” and encourages us to escape from being shy of our own shortcomings, but sometimes they are not even blemishes. The film did very well in this submission, without any instruction or exhortation. It all comes from emotions.
The message that she constantly hears from friends and family is to wear high heels – but it’s hard to ignore the trait that defines her point of view and (she feels) distracts her. forget in society. Supporting each other in friendship and family is praised in this movie as a need to gain self-esteem. With the right heart, the film can tell teenagers who feel marginalized, isolated or even bullied need to be confident in themselves. Only when we are confident in ourselves can we receive true love from everyone around us.
