iW NEWS | Here! Gets "Fat Girls"

By Indiewire | Indiewire July 16, 2007 at 10:23AM

Here! Films has acquired North American rights to Ash Christian's "Fat Girls," which debuted the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. The film is described (in an announcement) as a coming-of-age comedy about "the trials and tribulations of Rodney Miller (Christian), a gay theater-obsessed high school senior who has his heart set on becoming a Broadway star. With his overweight best friend and fellow social outcast Sabrina (Ashley Fink) by his side, the pair tries to find dates for their high school graduation dance sending them on a journey of self-discovery." It will be released theatrically by Here's sister company, Regent Releasing. Here! EVP Mark Reinhart negotiated the deal with Ronna Wallace representing the film. "We are thrilled to help bring Mr. Christian's debut project to theaters across the country," said Reinhart in a statement. "Fat Girls explores the angst and social isolation so many teenagers face as they struggle to fit in during the tough high school years. We hope audiences will fall in love with these characters."
