In high school, everyone has their niche. The great tragedy is that so often, those niches are assigned, not chosen.
Terri falls into two niches: he chooses to be a good hearted kid, but, given his size and feeble personality, he's been assigned to the frowned upon caste of the mocked and helpless.
Played by breakout star Jacob Wysocki, the titular character of "Terri," is a depressed youth caught acting out -- and wearing pajamas -- in response to difficulties at home and at school. When he's summoned to the office of Vice Principal Fitzgerald, played by John C. Reilly, the two begin an unlikely friendship of disaffection and mutual support.
The film is garnering rave reviews -- it appeared at Sundance to a strong response -- and hits theaters July 1st.
