Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger
Drama, Family, Comedy
 
 
"Hey, Hey It's Esther Blueburger" is a hilarious coming of age comedy that 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 off beat single mother Mary and 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 ok to be different and that being true to yourself is more important than fitting in. Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language, some sexual content and brief teen smoking.
