Trailer for My First Mister.
Jennifer does not fit in. A total misfit, she's as wacky as a teenager can be. Goth-ed out with multiple piercings, tattoos, and dyed hair, she listens to strange music, watches vintage TV, eats primarily chocolate, and self injures. But now high school is over and she needs a job. Can she possibly have anything in common with the overweight middle-aged man in the haberdashery window? He gives her a job, not to mention a real friendship.

Jennifer (Leelee Sobieski) is a 17-year-old Goth with multiple face-piercings and a fondness for graveyards. Randall (Albert Brooks) is a middle-aged salesman with an obsessively tidy life and a fear of anything new. When these two opposites collide, the chain reaction sparks a life-altering meltdown for them both in this wickedly perceptive, critically acclaimed comedy from Academy Award®-winning director and actress Christine Lahti.* Desperate to escape the world of her infuriatingly cheery mother (Carol Kane) and mindless classmates, punk-rebel Jennifer impulsively applies for a job at Randall's conservative clothing store. Soon, an unlikely friendship blooms. But even as Randall attempts to show Jennifer the possibilities of her own future, Jennifer discovers the extraordinary secret haunting Randall's past. A wry, hilarious, powerfully emotional story of reaching out, making contact, and coping with the consequences. MY FIRST MISTER is an unforgettable film Leonard Maltin applauds as "Wonderful and unpredictable!"
A teen with a penchant for morbid poetry forms a unique bond with her stuffy employer at an upscale clothing store.
