The film was screened at the Venice Film Festival with Fraser being idolized for his performance and there was a standing ovation, with the actor excited and everything indicates that it will possibly be the movie of his lifeWell, it already looks like an Oscar-nominated movie.
A chance to come back in a big way
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Brendan Fraser said it had nothing to do with what he’s done in the past and overall he saw it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a great opportunity to make a strong comeback, while his hope was to become someone unrecognizable for the part. He said that he gave everything he had and this is the first and last time he does such a thing.
The film is based on Samuel D. Hunter’s play of the same name, in which a lonely teacher weighs 270 pounds and basically lives on his couch. As his condition worsens and he finds himself desperate, hope emerges as he tries to reconnect with his estranged and short-tempered teenage daughter.
