Tall Girl | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Jodi Kreyman is sixteen years old and tall. She has been perceived as unusually tall since she was three, a source of insecurity for her, not helped by her dad's worry that her height is a medical risk. Students continually ask Jodi "how's the weather up there?", eventually causing Jodi's friend Fareeda to snap at one boy. Contrastingly, Jodi's older sister Harper is of average height and a winner of multiple beauty pageants. A boy in Jodi's class who always carries a milk crate, Dunkleman, frequently asks her out, but she is reluctant to date somebody she has known for so long, or someone shorter than her. Stig Mohlin, a Swedish foreign exchange student, joins Jodi's class, and she is immediately taken aback by his looks and intelligence. However, Kimmy Stitcher - a bully - starts showing him around. Dunkleman is distressed to learn that Stig will be staying in his house, his mother having volunteered to be the host family. Jodi asks her sister for help getting Stig to notice her but Harper does not believe Jodi can get an exchange student to be interested in her unless she stops dressing like a little boy. After a week of watching Kimmy follows Stig around, Jodi tells Harper that she is jealous. Harper and their mother go shopping with her to find a homecoming dress and to change Jodi's style. Kimmy, now in a relationship with Stig, gets her friend Schnipper to prank call Jodi pretending to be Stig and asking her to the homecoming dance. To Fareeda's frustration, Jodi hides in the bathroom to avoid Kimmy. Stumbling across Stig playing the piano, he encourages her to play and they sing the duet "I've Never Been in Love Before" from the musical Guys and Dolls.
