BIG GIRL

Large_film_12734087_photo1
Much of our childhood is spent either taking tests or putting others through tests. Renuka Jeyapalan delicately explores this notion in her debut short Big Girls. Nine-year-old Josephine is unabashedly resentful of her mother's newfound love life. When her mother hesitantly introduces her new boyfriend to Josephine, she gives him the cold shoulder. A bittersweet battle of wills erupts that is at once heartbreaking and hilarious. Enemies transform into sweethearts in this poignant tale of modern family politics.
