Fat Kid Rules the World

An overweight teen with no friends puts his planned suicide on hold after he is taken under the wing of an older yet unstable punk rocker in this tender adaptation of KL Going's award-winning young adult novel. Troy Billings (Jacob Wysocki) is a misfit with a weight problem. He's hatched a plan to end it all when out of the blue he meets 18-year-old non-conformist Marcus Macrae (Matt O'Leary), whose devil-may-care attitude gives Troy an optimistic new outlook on life. Troy's merciful reprieve from depression meets an unexpected challenge, however, when his strict father (Bill Campbell) deems Marcus a druggie troublemaker, and forbids the two from being friends. Fat Kid Rules the World marks the feature directorial debut of longtime actor Matthew Lillard (Scream, Scooby-Doo).
