My Girl is a 1991 coming-of-age film written by Laurice Elehwany and directed by Howard Zieff. Set during the summer of 1972, the film chronicles Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky), an 11-year old tomboy, as she takes her first tentative steps into adolescence while also struggling to understand mortality. Vada's mother's death during her birth burdens her with a deep sense of grief and guilt. Her father, Harry (Dan Aykroyd) is a funeral director who operates out of the family home. Harry struggles as a single father raising a daughter, especially as she matures and begins to wrestle with her sexuality. When Harry begins to become romantically involved with a woman named Shelly (Jamie Lee Curtis), Vada feels betrayed and takes it upon herself to do everything in her power to drive them apart. It takes another untimely tragedy to bring the father and daughter back together. My Girl also features Macaulay Culkin.
