Dir. Azazel Jacobs (2011). Jacobs’s sweet, strange Breakfast Club revision concerns an obese 15-year-old high school pariah. There’s very little here that’s cute or quirky and the direction is sufficiently skillful to obscure most of the platitudes inherent in the material. There are times when this weirdly bucolic movie suggests a less whimsical version of David Gordon Green’s early youth films and others when it projects a near-Lynchian sense of grotesque normality.
