Tall Girl is about the tallest girl, Jodi, falling for a very handsome foreign exchange student, named Stig. She suddenly becomes part of a love triangle, soon realizes her insecurities are only hindering herself from finding out who is truly there for her. This love triangle is with the exchange student, Stig, herself, and her best “weird” boy friend named, Jack. Once Stig enters himself into the picture, many girls become smitten for him. Especially Jodi’s childhood tourmenter, Kimmy. 

Seems like Tall Girl is meant for preteens to help them “better accept their body”. Parents have very mixed reviews saying that it’s an amazing movie, but very cliche. Tall Girl is still on Netflix with 82% of Google users liking the movie.
