Lbs is an upcoming drama comedy movie, it’s a funny but touching story about an overweight guy who’s finally decided to melt his fat. The film is directed by Matthew Bonifacio and is starring Carmine Famiglietti. The film will have a limited release starting March 26, 2010. Here’s the official movie trailer of Lbs:
“At 27-years-old, Neil Perota lives at home with his parents in Brooklyn, works for his father driving a school bus and weighs over 300 pounds. Just two days before his sister’s wedding, he suffers a heart attack, creating family chaos and forcing Neil to re-evaluate his life. The next day, he heads upstate and buys a dilapidated trailer in the middle of nowhere with plans to kick his addiction to food in isolation. Two hundred miles from the comforts of home, Neil learns how to compromise, love, and survive – and that change – real change – comes from within.”
I wonder how this film is going to turn out. I guess it won’t have mass appeal, but Lbs could be a fun movie to watch.
