This hilarious coming-of-age comedy explores what it’s really like to be an outsider in your own world. Esther is not like other girls: she befriends a duck, talks to God through the toilet and break-dances at her bat-mitzvah. Her school is a daily torment of mind-numbing conformity and bell-ringing rituals. Home is a pressure cooker driven by her mother Grace’s demand for perfection. But life changes when Esther meets uber-hip Sunni and her offbeat single mother Mary. Esther slips out of her oppressive all-girls private school and into a public one under the guise of a foreign exchange student. She learns that it’s okay to be different and that being true to yourself is more important than fitting in. Rated PG-13. Free and open to the public.
