Fat Kid Rules The World, Matthew Lillard, USA, 2012, English, 98 mins, Rated PG

In this endearing and humorous award winning film, Troy Billings is seventeen, overweight and suicidal. Just as he’s about to jump in front of a bus, he’s saved by Marcus, a charming high school/dropout street musician. The two begin an uneasy friendship when Marcus enlists the musically challenged Troy to become the drummer in a new punk rock band.
