    Interview: John C. Reilly Talks The Hardships Of Being A Guidance Counselor In 'Terri'

    Sundance ‘11 Review: ‘Terri’ Is Another Enjoyable But Slight Coming-Of-Age Indie

    Coming of age stories are as popular at Sundance as superhero films are at the multiplex, and though “Terri” doesn’t bring anything new to the genre, it does have its charms. Terri (newcomer Jacob Wysocki) is an outsider, a lonely overweight teen who lives in a small town and takes care of his Uncle James (Creed Bratton from “The Office”) who is suffering from some form of dementia.
