When quiet student Terri is teased for his pudgy frame he responds by wearing pyjamas to class. His odd behaviour attracts the attention of Vice-Principal Mr Fitzgerald (John C Reilly) whose inept efforts to motivate Terri only make matters worse. High school movies about awkward misfits are common and Terri could have easily become a series of indie clichés. Thankfully, the film excels where many others fail with its honest storytelling and performances. A big hit at Sundance last year, Terri is moving, original and, above all, very funny. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
