My best friend is promoting this event so I thought I might as well help her out and post it here :)

From the website:

"Winner of the SXSW Audience Award, Fat Kid Rules The World is the story of Troy Billings, 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. As Troy’s relationship with Marcus grows, Troy’s father becomes increasingly concerned about his son’s new friendship."

If anyone from Allentown or surrounding areas is free, be sure to get a ticket and check out this movie, directed by Matthew Lillard [yes, the dude from SLC Punk!], as well as an in-depth discussion following the screening.

Thanks :)
