NY Premiere

Precocious, isolated, and relentlessly bullied by her classmates about her height, Chicagoland high school senior Justine reluctantly begins therapy in the aftermath of a messy public affair with her English teacher. After a rocky first few sessions, she forms an unlikely bond with Douglas, her therapist, who is in a wheelchair and nurses demons of his own. Told with a sardonic wit, The View from Tall is a tender story of self-discovery at more than one age.
