Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger
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 (newcomer Danielle Catanzariti) 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 (Essie Davis) demand for perfection. But life changes when Esther meets uber hip Sunni, (Keisha Castle— Hughes) 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 it’s ok to be different and that being true to yourself is more important than fitting in.
