Premiering your film at SXSW is a big deal, even when you’re Matthew
Lillard. The “Scream” star — in Austin to unveil his directorial debut,
the coming-of-age teen comedy “Fat Kid Rules the World” — got visibly
choked up at the film’s third screening at the Alamo Drafthouse, after
audience members, young and old, stood up and told him how much his film
spoke to them. The best moment came when a woman, who appeared to be in
her 50s, asked what the film’s Twitter handle was. [Nigel M. Smith]
