The View from Tall full movie review - complex and nuanced
I left the theater last night very impressed after watching "The View From Tall." The story is well written and the two lead actors, Amanda Drinkall and Michael Patrick Thornton are great.
The story is more emotionally complex than the typical teen-coming-of-age plot line. Primarily because we view events from the perspective of a female protagonist who is a complex character rather than the one dimensional, watered-down girl we usually see from our mass media. Illicit romance, family conflict and school bullying are interwoven to create a deep and compelling story.
I watched this film during the Citizen Jane Film Festival.
