Terri movie scene

Jacob Wysocki (l.) gets the lowdown from John C. Reilly in Terri.

Directed and co-written by acclaimed independent auteur Azazel Jacobs (Momma’s Boy), the offbeat comedy drama movie Terri takes a little look at a high school student with an arguably big problem.

The film concerns overweight, pajama-wearing social misfit Terri Thompson (Jacob Wysocki, Huge), the lone caretaker and guardian for his elderly Uncle James (Creed Bratton, TV’s The Office).

While struggling to find acceptance in school, Terri finds refuge in the company of his shy but pretty classmate Heather (Olivia Crocicchia, TV’s Rescue Me). Hoping to bring him out of his awkward shell, Terri’s addled high school principal Mr. Fitzgerald (John C. Reilly, Cyrus) takes the student under his wing to distract himself from his own painful divorce. The growing pains experienced by both men soon give way to a handful of life lessons.

An official selection at both the Sundance and SXSW film festivals, the critically lauded Terri received limited play in U.S. theaters in July, 2011, ringing up nearly $650,000 at the box office.

The Terri Blu-ray and DVD include the following bonus features:
