Hey Hey It’s Esther Blueburger

Directed by Cathy Randall

Australia | 103 minutes | 2008

Hey, Hey Its Esther Blueburger is a hilarious coming of age comedy that explores what its 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 Graces demand for perfection. But life changes when Esther meets uber hip Sunni, and her off beat single mother Mary (Toni Collette) 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 its ok to be different and that being true to yourself is more important than fitting in.
