A shy fat kid is befriended by a rebel punk rocker. They form a band, and the fat kid takes it seriously.
I was pleasantly surprised after viewing Fat Kid... I too grew up chubby and withdrawn. I was attracted to characters like Marcus in my own life. Matt O'Leary plays a high powered, reckless poetic and tragic figure. A real hustler, and user of people. Jacob Wysoki who plays the part of Troy,is an excellent actor. He says so much with facial expressions, and he seems naive, but genuine.
I grew up playing Rock music, it became my career and I have no regrets. I only wish I had the kind of love and support Troys character enjoyed. The father ,played by Billy Campbell was so understanding, and nurturing. Obviously making up for the lack of a mother in the home.
I recommend this sweet and positive film. They are so rare and hard to come by. It was sentimental without being sappy.
