The true transgressive and transformational powers of punk rock are revealed in actor Matthew Lillard's directorial debut, Fat Kid Rules the World, an adaptation of K.L. Going's novel of the same name.

Set against the backdrop of the Seattle music scene, FAT KID RULES THE WORLD is a coming-of-age story about two dysfunctional teenagers searching for something more out of their completely hopeless existence.



Fat Kid Rules the World will have its world premiere Friday at 6:15 p.m. at the Alamo Lamar A theater.
