I am having a good run on Mubi, continuing with this excellent film.

Here is the plot from Wikipedia: Overweight and depressed 15-year-old Terri Thompson starts to slack off in school and wear pajamas, to the chagrin of his teachers. Soon Terri is taken under the wing of unconventional assistant principal Mr. Fitzgerald, who creates a series of Monday-morning counseling sessions for social outcasts at the school.

The acting and directing is top notch, and the story while not original, moves along at a good pace. There are no big name actors in this apart from John C. Reilly, who is brillo as usual.

Good stuff.

Date watched: April 22nd
Score: 9/10
Film count 2017: 61
