Coming off of a remarkable, vulnerable breakout performance in last year’s Sundance hit Terri, a young Jacob Wysocki gives an equally fantastic, nuanced lead turn in Fat Kid Rules The World, the brand-new portrait of uneasy teen friendship and rock ‘n roll blossoming. Wysocki is Troy, an obese misfit whose suicide attempt is thwarted by Marcus, an impulsive, drug-addled dropout. After they awkwardly bond over their respective anti-social behaviors, the increasingly out-of-control Marcus pushes Troy into being the drummer in his new punk band — but is either of them ready for the consequences of their self-destructive relationship? Helmed by Matthew Lillard (star of SLC Punk, Scooby-Doo and Without A Paddle), who makes a striking debut in the director’s chair, Fat Kid gives the satisfying feeling that only the best coming-of-age novel or Afterschool Special can deliver: a nakedly honest portrait of adolescence that sticks in your craw long after the credits roll, and that synthesizes with your memories of your own childhood in a painfully real way. Matthew Lillard will be at the Cinefamily in person for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Matthew Lillard, 2012, 94 min.
