There will be a Q & A with Director Mark Phinney and Actor Mel Rodriguez after the 3/10 7:30PM performance at the Music Hall Theatre, Beverly Hills.

Ken won’t change his ways. Addicted to food, Ken is in bad health, and is headed to an early grave. Despite getting help and advice from his friends and doctors, he does what he wants, when he wants, until a chance encounter with love that might just give him the motivation he needs to save himself.

FAT is a gritty, dramatic look at weight and food addiction. It is an unflinching story based on Mark Phinney’s own experiences and writings. Shot on location in Boston, FAT is a low – dough, independent, real-life look at depression, eating, and the toll it takes, from damaging ourselves, to damaging those around us. Dealing with body image on real terms, FAT gets away from the sitcom, and reality television world of overeating.

Starring Mel Rodriguez (Better Call Saul, The Watch,Malcolm in the Middle, NYPD Blue, The Terminal, Little Miss Sunshine).
