It’s 1982, and the Dicksons (Jim, Jeanne, and Aurelie) move (are the new-comers) to a southern town where all the girls long for Farrah Fawcett-type curls (to match their back-woods accents/ and love to talk hair./ and obsess over their hair.) Pre-teen AURELIE begs her parents for a permanent, (known outside the south as a perm) hoping for life-changing curly waves but when they take her to a Beauty School instead of a salon to save money, disaster ensues. A bored Student-Beautician accidentally sets the timer for too long, and the perm ends up destroying Aurelie’s already low-grade social life as well as her hair follicles. Aurelie is left as a gawky yet endearing young teenager trying to navigate junior high with what some kids call an afro, then throw things at her, from epithets to dodgeballs.

Seen at the 2017 Twin Cities Film Festival, Permanent is a funny, charming movie about a family feeling uncomfortable as they start in a new town, based on the director’s real-life experiences. Kira McLean is amazing, and Rainn Wilson and Patricia Arquette play off each other very well! Touches on racism.
I find myself wishing that this film could be seen nationally by all my friends, and again in the Twin Cities theaters. Also, I would like to see a toll-free number/contact added for assistance if someone is being bullied.
Such a fun movie! Reminded me of Little Miss Sunshine! Loved seeing Rainn Wilson as a family man, especially alongside Patricia Arquette (who I loved in Boyhood). Cool to see him flex his comedy muscles in a different way after such a great run as Dwight on The Office. Can’t wait to take my niece — even though it’s set in the ’80s, I’m sure she’ll relate! So funny
Permanent, the new film by writer/director Colette Burson, opens with the ineffable sound-language of sea mammals; whales, dolphins. And the mysteries of communication and connectivity those beyond our ken as mere human beings – preoccupy the narrative here too. For all of its gratifications (and packaging) as a comedy, this is also a lovely, brave, and even necessary film. A film about not just the awkwardness of adolescence, but the persistent awkwardness of adulthood and the hinge points between frustration and love that bind together the middle class American family. One that examines, at its core, not the more trammeled ground of disaffected sons and their brittle mothers or taciturn fathers, nor even the subterranean love/hate competitions of mothers and daughters themselves, but instead the under-examined everyday of a father/daughter interconnection.
This might be unsurprising given the source of the material, Burson, who created the gender role subverting Hung television series for HBO. But what ennobles this material, beyond the too-infrequent instance of a perspective from a woman writer/director, is the particularity of its vision and tone. This is a film that obeys its own rules, even creates them. She’s working in the idiosyncratic landscape that’s been the rubric of a Wes Anderson or a Todd Solondz. but with what turns out to be a refreshing and reanimating optimism.
It helps that the father in question, Jim, is played by Rainn Wilson, the actor who played the punctilious and corporate-climbing Dwight Schrute on TV’s The Office. Wilson’s Jim is similarly self- deluding and ceremonious, but considerably more vulnerable and, in the end, redeemable. The role gives Wilson a chance to show capacities he could not as pontificating Dwight. Burson gives Wilson his share of wordless moments here silences that he handles with assurance of a Bill Murray but in a way that’s strictly his own. His Jim is a man who’s hard to fathom but, for us in the end, possible to love.
