Missing Fat Kid
Whoops. We inadvertently omitted capsule write-ups from our print edition for films opening at the Guild Cinema this evening, so here they be:
Fat Kid Rules the World
Actor Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) tries his hand at directing with this coming-of-age comedy about a suicidal high-schooler who gets recruited by a druggy dropout to become the drummer in a punk rock band. Based on K.L. Going's 2003 young adult novel.
James Franco, Heather Graham and Lili Taylor costar in this drama about a troubled 19-year-old (Ashley Hinshaw from Chronicle) who moves to San Francisco and gets involved in the porn industry. The script comes courtesy of adult film vet Lorelei Lee.
