Terri (2011) – Azazel Jacobs

Terri tells the story of a large, awkward high school misfit who is chastised for his weight and his shyness.Jacob Wysocki makes his debut as the titular loser who is truly happy to be himself and doesn’t understand why the world is trying to help him, starting with Fitzgerald, the school principal, played by John C. Reilly. Reilly, while broad, is very funny and a good counterpoint to the reserved Wysocki who’s simply too shy to be a large character. I’m not sure the movie amounts to as much as it thinks it does, but it never drags and has many funny scenes and a few of genuine insight.
