Tall Girl movie review: The story about an otherwise, beautiful unassuming girl, Jodi, who yes, is six-ft-one-and-a-half — who wears a Nike men's 13 — and has been bullied through high school, could have been engaging, if only it didn’t have a paper-thin plot.
We never hear the gut-wrenching sobs that are a definitive byproduct of heartbreak for women, as much as they are for men. So I wonder why we haven’t had a female version of Devdas? Because crying women look “unattractive” on screen?
Taking the politics of today and blending it with fantasy of yore, if done well, could have filled the Game of Thrones size hole in the life of the fans of the genre. It doesn’t. You are better off watching reruns of the George Martin creation.
