Jacob Wysocki infuses his performance in the title role with precisely that same duality, turning Terri into an oversized portrait of adolescence -- so naive yet so wise, strangely believable and believably strange.
An overweight loner, a goofy sidekick, the school siren -- you can write the script yourself, all about an insecure teenager adrift in a sea of adolescent anguish, blahblahblah. And yet, that's not quite what happens.
