Tall Girl Trailer

Height and Love Consume First Trailer of Netflix’s “Tall Girl”

Netflix has tapped Dance Moms’ Ava Michelle for their next coming-of-age story, and it appears the famed dancer is using her uniqueness to gain a little bit of the spotlight as she stands proudly at the center of Tall Girl.

Tall Girl, much like you would assume, follows Jodi (Michelle), the tallest girl in almost every room, as she navigates the rigors of high school. Always uncomfortable with her height, Jodi has thrown away the idea of love as she does just about anything to make herself look shorter. But when Stig (Luke Eisner), a seemingly perfect foreign exchange student who is even taller than she is, walks into her classroom, all bets are off.

Netflix has just released a trailer for the forthcoming film, and though a bit duunoriginal, the anti-bullying message should resonate with many. It will also be interesting to see if first-time feature director Nzingha Stewart opts to integrate any of Michelle’s known talents with her insecure and off-beat character.

Co-starring Griffin Gluck, Anjelika Washington, Sabrina Carpenter, Steve Zahn, and Angelia Kinsey, Tall Girl is set to hit the streaming platform on September 13.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
