Dear Friends,

As you all know, the life of an independent film is determined by its first weekend in theaters and the box office numbers it gets…

“Fat Girls” is a very independent film without the marketing dollars of most indies that are currently coming to theaters… we are trying to get a great opening weekend to continue in the crowded marketplace.

I sincerely hope you will come out and buy a ticket (or buy one online!) for this weekend…and please send this email to your friends and family…. Even if you’ve seen the film before – any bought ticket really matters.

You can buy tickets online at: http://www.movietickets.com

It is just in LA and NY this weekend but opening wider in the coming weeks…but our first weekend has to do well. Please forward this to your friends and email lists, if you can 🙂

In NY it is playing at:

Quad Cinemas
34 W 13th St
New York, NY 10011

Regent Showcase
614 N. La Brea Ave.
Los Angeles, CA. 90036

“DELIGHTFULLY PREPOSTEROUS” A seductive deadpan comedy in the style of Napoleon Dynamite by wunderkind Ash Christian, Fat Girls will leave you smiling.”
-Bay Area Reporter

“Pain and discomfort has rarely been so amusing.”
– San Francisco Station – 4 out of 5 stars

“A guilty pleasure that fans of both “Napoleon Dynamite” and “American Pie” might enjoy.”
Dennis Harvey, Variety

“Cheeky and clever, charming and ultimately infused with a very strong, important message about self-acceptance. As a writer-director,
Christian packs this film with hilarious little touches that keep us giggling.
Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

“Completely, beautifully made.”
– John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus)

“20 year old Ash Christan proves himself a triple-threat, writing, directing and starring”
– HX MAGAZINE by Mark Peikert

“An impressive display of directorial and performance energy… nails the peeved spirit of educational jail with astounding accuracy. This
renewed peek at awkward wonder years gave me a thrill. Christian has nonetheless carved himself out a sharply observed indie siren that
pays light attention to matters of identity.
Brian Orndorf, eFilmCritic.com

“Christian shows some real comic talent here”
– New York Magazine Online

“Kind of low-budget, homegrown indie that deserves a look”
– New York Magazine

“The film is reminiscent of the sleeper hit “Napoleon Dynamite””
– Entertainment Weekly

“Heart-warming reminder of just how special each of our teenage stories are. Ash Christian captures what is best in the campy, low-class realism styles of such famous directors as John Waters, Ed Wood, and even David Lynch while still remaining entirely original in his approach. ”
– Robert, Urban, AfterElton.com

“Think low-budget meets high art with just enough Gus Van Sant, Todd Haynes and John Waters tossed in to make it interesting”
– Byron Beck, Willamette Week/ Portland, Oregon

“Fat Girls” is a hilarious roller coaster ride that careens to an outrageous climax. This auspicious debut announces the arrival of filmmaker and star Ash Christian as a major new talent.

Thanks for all the support,

    Just watched the trailer and I SO WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!! But I live in little old Moscow Idaho and can’t get to Portland to see it tomorrow night in time (got a field trip tomorrow until 5 and it is a 6 hour drive to Portland. WAAAHHHH!!!!!!).

    Hmmm, maybe I can see if the Kenworthy might bring it in, they take requests 🙂

    Just put in a request for our local little movie theatre and performance art company to see if they could bring it to Moscow 😀 So with fingers crossed I await their reply

    Well damn and hell, it’s not playing in Portland (OR) and I’ve been wanting to see it the *second* I heard about it! Hell, it’s already in my Queue.

    Well, I’ll cross my fingers that the good folks in LA and NY come out in fat sweaty enthusiastic beautiful masses to support this film…maybe the it will hit the sad little second cities and we can all bask in the cinematic glory that is Ash Christian.

    *rereading, I realize this sounds snarky, but it is, in fact, painfully sincere*
