Fat Kid Rules the World

Director: Matthew Lillard
2012, 98 min

A cinematic adaptation of Sullivan County-based author K.L. Going’s novel, Fat Kid Rules the World is the funny and touching story of Troy (Jacob Wysocki), an overweight teen who doesn’t quite live up to the expectations of his athletic younger brother or his ex-Marine father. With the encouragement of his one and only friend Marcus, a prescription-drug addicted high school dropout, Troy breaks out of his virtual reality, takes up drumming, and finally learns what it means to like himself. This high-octane story of teen lust, heavy metal, and sticking up for your friends is brought to the big screen by actor-turned-director Matthew Lillard. Fat Kid Rules the World stars Jacob Wysocki, Lili Simmons, Matt O’Leary, Billy Campbell, and Dylan Arnold.
