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

    Terri
    Dir: Azazel Jacobs
    Starring: John C. Reilley, Jacob Wysocki, Olivia Crocicchia

    Jacob Wysocki is Terri, a fat boy living with his ailing uncle James, having been abandoned by his parents. He is ridiculed and bullied at school sometime, but he copes with it. In my humble opinion, he quickly shows off his cleverness, when he speaks to his uncle from inside of the washroom. I knew exactly at that point, what his character was going to be like. He's troubled but it's really worth seeing how he handles all wrong angles around him. A good movie to watch after-all.

    This atypical coming of age story focuses on alienation in high school. The lazy mood of the film leads its characters into one of the more mundane yet realistic climaxes ive ever seen in a film.

    Terri is slow, lazy, and sad. I'm referring not only to the character, but the movie as well. Terri recieved two stars because...I love the piano score and I love Creed Bratton.

    Not your typical teenage coming of age movie this films main strength is for me is to have characters that I have never seen or are so focused on in a movie before. The film is definitely more of a character study than an actual story as it follows teenager Terri Thompson an overweight social misfit who goes to school in Pyjamas and is basically a recluse slightly bullied but not overly so by his peers and we follow him…

    The debate whether to give Terri 4 stars or 3.5 was a tough one. While it may be an accurate showcase of social anxiety, and the pursuit to fit in, the film never reaches any heights on an emotional level. Throughout the film, it gets increasingly harder to feel sympathetic towards the characters (much like Greenberg). Subsequently, because…

    ★★★★ = Very good

    Overweight and poor fifteen-year-old Terri wears pyjamas to school because they are the only comfortable clothes he owns. He has no friends and is mocked by his classmates. He lives on a sole diet of baked beans on toast. Assistant principal Fitzgerald is trying to help him and the other misfits in his school.

    A hit at the Sundance 2011 Film Festival, Azazel Jacob’s wonderful film follows this gentle small-town boy as he lives through some…
