Chubby Funny (DVD)101 Films Store
Some nicknames are better than others!
Oscar thinks he's special. He isn't. He thinks it's everyone else's fault. It's not. Moving to London, he gives himself a year to break into showbiz, but ends up waylaid by the same old problems: friendships, fucking, and finding ultimate fulfilment. Say what you like, but it's tough being Chubby Funny.
Featuring an amazing British cast, including writer/director Harry Michell (Double Date), Augustus Prew (High Rise), Alice Lowe (Prevenge), Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing), Isabella Laughland (Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool), Phoebe Nicholls (Fortitude), Anna Maxwell Martin (Philomena), Jemma Redgrave (Doctor Who).
