Introduction: how the movie Mean Girls reflects high school life

The 2004 movie Mean Girls is a reflection of high school life.
The film follows the story of Cady Heron, who moves from Africa to the U.S., and attends public school for the first time as a sophomore.
She quickly learns that in order to survive in the social hierarchy of high school, she must first understand the unwritten rules of girl culture.

The movie is full of iconic quotes that perfectly capture the highs and lows of high school life.
For example, when Cady first meets Regina George, the head mean girl, Regina asks her where she’s from.
Cady responds with “Africa,” and Regina says “Oh, so you’re a jungle freak?”
This line perfectly captures the way some students treat those who are different from them.
