Final Cut —
In celebration of the fact that we reached our goal of selling
54 41 tickets to Fat Kid Rules the World so that my son’s best friend, Michael, can see it, I am proud to present part 2 of my interview with KL Going.
The first interview covered KL’s novel of the same name, as well as her writing career in general. This interview is all about the film itself and how it came to fruition from the moment director Matthew Lillard was brought to tears by the story to the 9+ year struggle to make it a reality.
The film is most likely available near you, which you can search for at Tugg the Fat Kid. I also want to give a special shout out to the Tugg efforts going on in Reno, organized by our own Shaunta (deadline August 7), and in Los Angeles,(expires August 8) organized by reader fruitjoos. Don’t miss these opportunities to support an awesome film and some awesome people!
