Napoleon Dynamite (2004) IMDb

Categorization

Outcast comedy.

Subject

Somewhere in the mists of the crushingly unhip generic near past (80’s with elements of the 90’s), in a very placid part of rural Idaho: A bullied weirdo in high school refuses to attach much importance to reality, but suffers from it nonetheless.

Commentary

Eventually steeps to the motif of the underdog awing the establishment, with tolerable effects. Lots of quirkiness, good actors.
