Austin Film Festival presents Audience Award Series: Don't Talk to Irene
Irene wants nothing more than to be a cheerleader. Her idol, Geena Davis, convinces her to risk it all and try out. This leads to an unexpected situation that lands her a suspension and a two-week community service stint at a retirement home. Tapping into her passion for cheerleading, Irene secretly signs up the senior residents to audition for a talent-search reality show to prove that you don’t need to be physically "perfect" to be perfectly awesome.
