Fat Kid Rules the World (2012)

Indie φιλμάκι με πρωταγωνιστή τον Troy, ένα 16-χρονο που ζει στο Seattle και παλεύει με την παχυσαρκία, την κοινωνική απομόνωση και την απώλεια της μητέρας του. Η φιλία του με έναν κατεστραμμένο rock star θα του δώσει διέξοδο παίζοντας ντραμς στη νέα του punk μπάντα.

Συμπαθητικό, με πολύ ωραίες ερμηνείες, ένας φόρος τιμής στη δύναμη της ανθρώπινης ψυχής. Αξίζει.
