Don’t Talk To Irene is a charming comedy about Irene, the fattest girl in school. Following suspension and with the help of some kind strangers – soon to be friends, Irene finds her inner awesomeness during two weeks of community service at a retirement home.
Starring Michelle McLeod (Irene), Geena Davis, Anastasia Phillips and Scott Thompson, there is very little I don’t like about Don’t Talk To Irene. The voice of the narrator and the film’s soundtrack are key highlights. However my main highlight is definitely McLeod’s charming performance as a smart, strong-willed and imaginative teenager.
Thanks to the writing and fun performances, I was both moved and amused during director Patt Mills’s movie. So much so in fact, that I wouldn’t be mad about news of more adventures with lovely Irene. With such a winning personality, I couldn’t help but wonder how one could not hope for a daughter with Irene’s spirit.
Watch it for the mood-lifting story, charming performances and general cuteness.
Happy Film Loving
