I had the chance to talk with Angela Kinsey, who plays Jodi’s mom Helaine, and Tall Girl 2 director Emily Ting. I couldn’t pass up the chance to ask Ting about creating the musical Bye Bye Birdie within the film.

About Tall Girl 2

After her inspiring speech at the homecoming dance, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the “tall girl” – she’s popular, confident, has a boyfriend, and just booked the lead role in this year’s school musical. But as the pressure of her newfound popularity intensifies, so do her insecurities, and new relationships are formed while old ones are tested. As the world she built starts to crumble around her, Jodi realizes that standing tall was only just the beginning.
