Terri centers on a large 15-year-old boy in a small town as he struggles to adjust to his difficult life.
The director Azazel Jacobs was noted by some as worth watching after the release of his 2008 film Momma’s Man. The comedy, which has been doing the festival circuit, will get it’s theatrical release in July.
A hit at the Sundance 2011 Film Festival, Terri is a moving and often funny film about the relationship between Terri, an oversized teen misfit, and the garrulous but well-meaning vice principal (John C Reilly) who takes an interest in him.
Terri is produced by the team behind Blue Valentine and Half Nelson, and directed by Azazel Jacobs (Momma’s Man).
