Dir. Azazel Jacobs (2011). Jacobss sweet, strange Breakfast Club revision concerns an obese 15-year-old high school pariah. Theres very little here thats 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 Greens early youth films and others when it projects a near-Lynchian sense of grotesque normality.
