    A select group of social outcasts are taken under the wing of their eccentric vice principal. The result is rather a delightful story of some very quirky individuals who exhibit some rather attractive, redeeming qualities.

    "Life's a mess. But we're all just doing the best that we can . . . So if I hurt you, all I can tell you is I'm sorry and I will try to do better. Maybe I will do better, or maybe I'll do…

    Jacob Wysocki gives an impressive performance as Terri, a lonely, indifferent, obese 15 year old who wears PJs to school, and who comes to the attention of his helping principal (Reilly, also terrific). The awkwardness of adolescence is painfullly captured at times. One has to wonder though if the assortment of characters surrounding Terri, and Terri himself, needed to be so weird.

    At first I wasn't liking the film that much but then the story started to get better and better. A good screenplay with a brilliant climax.

    Given Jacobs's pedigree, I thought a moment of genuine delirium would have come sooner - say, mid-way through Momma's Man - but the formula gets expunged in the shed scene with Terri, Chad, and Heather, where it felt like the madness could erupt into a totally new film. It wouldn't have surprised me had Chad reappeared with a gun, but he doesn't. He simply sleeps, and leaves in bad conscience. This has to be the point of the whole movie,…

    Body shaming
    Fat shaming
    Rape culture
    Sexual assault
    Victim blaming

    All the things people dislike about indie, minus all the good things people say about indie. Incredibly boring.

    Alright. So. I liked the movie. I liked the performances. There are many very effective and affecting scenes. Still, it left me unsatisfied. The sequence of events never quite got around to being a story.

    Is this good?

    Slightly absorbing, slightly repulsive. "Terri," the story of a fat kid who is mocked not particularly bullied at school outlines all the usual teen, coming of ages notions that get bandied about in teen films.

    All of that lies ahead in this story, which observes him for two or three weeks as he goes about his daily business looking after his sick uncle and dealing with his unusual friends. His house is in a wooded semi-rural area,…

    There's something so... true about what this movie portrays. Jacob Wysocki turns in a stellar performance.
